Congo Tetra (Phenacogrammus interruptus)
An exceptionally beautiful African tetra, the Congo Tetra (Phenacogrammus interruptus) is a relatively peaceful fish endemic to the Congo River Basin. Their rainbow iridescence and long, flowing fins make them a prized community fish among freshwater hobbyists. While not required, this tetra tends to prefer planted tanks with dimmer lighting that imitates its natural environment. The Congo Tetra will be most comfortable and display its best coloration in schools of 5 or more, making a beautiful centerpiece group of fish.
