" Black Tetras are superb fish for newbies, but they are also excellent fish for the best of display tanks. I have a large school of them in a 300 gallon show tank in our living room; they are heavenly and get along great with the other community fish within the tank (i.e., Glowlight Tetras, Bloodfins, Buenos Aires Tetras, Red Glass Barbs, and Flame Tetras). I've had gorgeous Discus fish and Angel fish for years, in the show tank... but the masses of Black Tetras and other fish are just as beautiful, in their own way! I've had tropical fish since my grade school years; I'm now around 60 years old... and I know top quality fish when I see them. These pert, black beauties may be common and inexpensive... but as Walt Whitman sagaciously suggested... some of the best things in life are free. These fish, like flat miniature versions of Silver Dollars, carry themselves well, looking like content butterflies. They are never aggressive when kept in larger groups. They are very hardy and stay out at the front of the tank, displaying well. I even have a picture of one for the wallpaper for my computer!"
