Perfect community fish
Great fish! If you plan to pick up some skirts to add to a tank, get as many as you can for your tank size. Fish are active, friendly (greets you at the glass) and does well with other community fish. I have 19 of them in a tank with 27 Serpae tetras. Very relaxing when they shoal. Fun to watch!

Black Skirt Tetras
I have a school of 7 skirt tetras in my 46 gal aquarium right now. I have 2 regular black skirts tetras that are over 4 years old, 2 long finned black skirts & 3 GloFish skirt tetras. They all school together. They are very hardy fish, very active, they like my pH, they're not so small you can't see them, & they let you know what they are feeling by changing colors. When they are happy their "skirts" will be black & when they are stressed their skirt will be white. They are best kept in schools of 5 or more. If you keep only 1-2 they will be less active & hide a lot. These skirt tetras are one of my favorite fish & I always keep a school of them in my aquarium. I highly recommend them!

Bought 4 yesterday, a touch aggressive, but nothing major. Great deal at $1.00 each.
