Weitzman Tetras, also known as Black Morpho Tetras, are found in very soft, acidic, tannin stained waters that are most commonly found in slow moving rain forest streams with mud or sand substrates, lots of submerged trees, and an abundance of decomposing leaf litter.

Unlike the majority of Tetras, these fish do not form into large shoals.   Males are territorial and aggressive towards each other, and although it is possible to keep a pair in an aquarium environment, it is better to keep them in a small group or “harem” of one or two males with several females to minimize bullying.
