Wild collected ones, on the other hand, are available only seasonally. We recently obtained once more a good shipment of these beautiful animals from Colombia
Wild collected and bred emperor tetras differ - as it is the case in most species of tetra - mainly in respect to the figure. Wild collected ones are much more gracile than bred ones for the food in the wild is by far not that opulent as it is usually in aquaria. In respect of coloration one can say that there is no difference between wild and bred ones: both are very beautiful!
