AMAZING!This fish is absolutely amazing! I was looking for fish and the stores associate told me that she has NEVER seen one die! So I got two, and when she put the net in there to get only two, about 6 got in there!! They all wanted to get in the net!! I thought that was cool. When I got them, they were VERY friendly to the other fish. They always follow eachother and I see them ALL the time other than other fish. I have glofish, so they eat up top. My Skirt Tetras Eat when it comes in the middle, and they just love dinner time! They do not hog it al though, getting the just right amount. Even though they say you need 5+, they said 2 would just be great. SO YOU DONT need more than 5! 2 is just fine! But they are a schooling fish. I would HIGHLY recommend for beginners!!!!!!!! :)
