The Bleeding Heart Tetra, also known as Punto Rojo or Red Tipped Tetra, is a very easy to keep tropical fish, as it is very hardy, so it is one of the most suitable fish species for beginner aquarists.

They distinguish themselves by the red spot on their sides, commonly known as a “heart,” which gives the species its popular name “bleeding heart” tetra. Being schooling fish, they are very active and will surely turn out to be your aquarium’s main attraction.

Its original habitat is the Amazon River Basin and other river basins in South America and Columbia, but they are very easily bred in aquariums as well.

The Bleeding Heart Tetra’s usual life span is between 3-5 years and it reaches up to 3 inches in length. Females are usually more full bodied and males have a larger dorsal fin.
