Research and Development

With our unique product developments, we have made it our goal to make care for the underwater world as easy as possible. This allows aquarium owners to provide their ornamental fish with a natural, species-appropriate environment with little effort. For this purpose, we have the largest research and development department in the industry, in which new innovative products of the highest quality standards are constantly developed.

“I’ve been passionate about fishkeeping ever since I was a young boy. Tetra gave me the opportunity to turn my hobby into a career. I’ve worked in biological quality assurance for over 30 years now and still find my job extremely exciting and varied. Where else could I work with so many fascinating species of fish?!”
