Remarks: The Black Emperor Tetra (Nematobrycon Palmeriis a striking color morph of the standard Emperor Tetra. This tetra is popular for its deep black body coloration and bright blue/green eyes. These fish are great for most medium community aquariums, and are recommended to be kept in groups of at least 6 to 10 as they are schooling fish. 

Adult males will have elongated dorsal and caudal fins, paired with an extended middle ray, forming a "trident" tail. The females will typically be smaller in length and thicker in size. This tetra typically occupies the top and middle column of the aquarium, so they would be a great addition to a community tank with bottom dwellers.
