Blue Emperor Tetra
The blue emperor tetra is rare tank bred species developed from the parent wild purple emperor tetra. Super blue or royal blue emperor tetras display a solid blue body and light blue highlights on the classic extended fins. Male emperor tetras have slightly larger fins than the females, but like most other species, they display their colors better with both sexes present. We import our blue emperors from a breeder in Singapore – whenever they become available! Pictured is a mature male in heat, but some blue and black is featured in all the fish.
