In the wild this fish eats mainly aquatic insect larvae and crustaceans. In an aquarium they will readily adapt to a diet of commercial dry fish foods, but benefit from a variety of food including both live and frozen foods such as daphnia and bloodworms.
The glass bloodfin tetra is a community tank fish that will do best in a group of 8-10 or more fishes. A well plated aquarium with volume of 15 Gallons (57 L) would make a great home for this species.
Prionobrama filigera will breed successfully in harder and more alkaline water than most tetra species. A pH of 7.3 and 10 degrees of hardness is suitable, but not the much harder water the adults can live in. It is an egg scattering species that will eat its own eggs.
