Exodon Tetra (Exodon paradoxus), also known as the bucktooth tetra, is a species of freshwater fish native to South America. They are characterized by their silver body with hues of orange, yellow, and green, a black spot and their sharp, prominent teeth. Exodon tetras prefer a well-decorated tank with hiding places and a moderate current. They are known to be a predatory fish and can be aggressive towards smaller fish, so it's recommended to keep them with other similarly sized and temperament fish.
