The red eye tetra (Moenkhausia sanctaefilomenae), also known as the yellow-banded moenkhausia, the yellow back moenkhausia and the yellowhead tetra is a species of tetra. It is a freshwater fish, can grow up to 7 cm, and can live for approximately 5 years. The Red-eye tetra has a bright silver body accented by a black tail and a thin red circle around its eye. It is found in South America, in Paraguay, eastern Bolivia, eastern Peru, and western Brazil
The red eye tetra's hardiness and ease of care makes it an excellent beginner fish. This fish is readily available, peaceful, and is suitable for most community aquariums, although it is quite active and may disturb slower, more timid species. A word of caution-although generally peaceful, some individuals have been known to be fin nippers on rare occasions, even when kept in groups of 5 or more.  The red eye tetra is a schooling fish and should be kept in groups of six or more, if kept alone it may nip the fins of other fish. The red eye tetra does best at temperatures of 72-79F in a planted tank with plenty of shoaling space. Red eyes tolerate a range of water conditions but prefer slightly soft, acid water.

银屏灯,学名moenkhausiasanctaefilomenae,又名银屏鱼,原产于南美洲的亚马孙河、圭亚那、巴西等地,属拟鲤科。身体纺锤形体,体长5-7cm,呈纺锥形,身体银灰色,鳞片边缘黑色,眼圈红色,尾巴上有一黑色竖纹。 该鱼适宜水温22-25摄氏度,喜弱酸性软水,成群在水族箱中上层活动,吃水蚤等活饵料,也吃颗粒饲料。该鱼繁殖要求弱酸性软水,水温26-28摄氏度,性成熟年龄约6-8个月,在50升左右的水族箱内放置金丝草等丝状水草,供鱼繁殖做巢,这个时候亲鱼会互相追逐,并在水草中产卵并完成受精。但繁殖后应将亲鱼捞出,防止亲鱼吃卵。亲鱼繁殖量较大,每次可产卵400-500粒,常温下受精卵经过1-2天就可以孵化出小鱼。
