Description: The fish get its name after the Brazilian ethnologist Harald Schultz. Hyphessobrycon haraldschultzi has a red-orange body color with a dark spot behind the gill plate. The dorsal fin has a large dark spot with the tip and base white. The anal and pelvic fins are edged in white.

Mature females are plumper and usually a little larger than males. The Crystal Red Tetra is an egg-scattering free spawner exhibiting no parental care. Well conditioned mature fish will spawn often and in a mature, heavily planted aquarium it is possible that small numbers of fry may survive. To raise more fry the adults should be separated in a small, dimly lit spawning tank which base is covered with some kind of breeding mesh or with fine-leaved plants to protect the eggs from the greedy parents. The water should be slightly acidic or neutral pH. The fish can be spawned in a small group of one or two males and several females. After they scatter the eggs the adult fish can be removed. After the fry hatch, they can be fed with liquid fry food, and Artemia nauplii or microworm.
