Giant Spotted Emperor Tetra (Pseudochalceus kyburzi)

Out of stock

Remarks: Giant Spotted Emperor Tetras (Pseudochalceus kyburzi) are a medium-sized tetra that can certainly hold their own against aggressors. Adults can be territorial towards each other and will likely attack very small fish, but leave larger fish alone. They make for great tankmates for larger South American cichlids, such as Severums, Geophagus, and Chocolate Cichlids. The name P. kyburzi was given in honor of William Kyburz, who discovered the Emperor Tetra and was a famous fish exporter.
