Ease Of Keeping: average
Aggressivness: Peaceful, a lot less nippy than other tetras.
Lighting: doesn't matter
Adult Size: 2.5 inches (6.25cm)
Minimum Tank Size: 15 gallons (60 liters)
Feeding: This fish will accept flake foods but a little treat like freeze dried blood worms, black worms, brine shrimp etc. will be very helpful.

Comments: I have these tetras with medium sized angelfish and blood fin tetras. They don't pick on anybody else. They have a bright, metallic blue on there back side and red fins. Great for communities, but keep no less than 5 in a tank.
