Longfin Serpae tetras are native to the waters of the Amazon basin, the Guaporé and Paraguay River basins in Argentina, Brazil, and upper Paraguay. Most of these fishes that are currently sold in the aquarium trade are usually tank bred rather than wild-caught.
In their natural environment, serpae tetras eat small live foods such as insects, invertebrates, and worms. In the aquarium world, they will accept mostly any food including flakes, pellets, freeze-drieds, and frozen foods.
It is recommended to feed any fish a mixed diet of live and dry food
