Remarks: Bleeding Heart Tetras (Hyphessobrycon erythrostigma) are tall-bodied tetras from the Amazon. As they age, their pale bodies turn more pink, and the red heart-shaped spot on their flank darkens in color. Males have long dorsal fins that extend to the caudal fin, and watching males display to one another makes for an incredible sight. Because of their size, they do well with larger cichlids such as Geophagus, Angelfish, and Severums.
