The Weitzman Tetra (Poecilocharax weitzmani) is widely distributed throughout several river drainages in Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela, and Peru, and is also known to tropical fish keeping enthusiasts as the Black Darter Tetra or Black morpho tetra. Wild specimens collected from Colombia and Brazil are much more intensely colored, and specimens collected from Peru may be an undescribed species.
Weitzman Tetras are found in very soft, acidic, tannin stained waters that are most commonly found in slow moving rain forest streams with mud or sand substrates, lots of submerged trees, and an abundance of decomposing leaf litter.
