Remarks: Red and Blue Colombian Tetras (Hyphessobrycon columbianus) are a peaceful species of tetra that works well with large cichlids due to their robust size. At full length, they can measure 3-4" from tip to tip. Both males and females have shiny blue bodies with bright red fins, and the fins in males extend slightly further than in females. A school of 10-20 will look very natural in a 55 gallon tank with some Angelfish, Severums, or Geophagus.
