    Vital Statistics

     

    Description

     
     

    Origin: Brazil to Argentina

    Size: 2.5 inches total length

    Temperament: usually peaceful, but slightly boisterous among themselves and can be nippy toward long finned tankmates

    Sociability: schooler; avoid small groups to cut down on intraspecies aggression

    Breeding: egg scatterer

    Sexing: males have narrower dorsal fin; females heavier-bodied

    Diet: omnivorous; accepts flakes

    Water Chemistry: pH 5.8–7.5; dH 10–25

    Temperature: 68–79°F

     

    The Black Skirt tetra is one of the most common fishes found in dealer’s tanks. Though they can be a bit nippy on slower moving, long finned species, they make a great beginners fish. They are hardy and accept prepared foods with gusto.

    Though the dark black found on younger specimens will fade to gray as the fish ages, the high body shape helps this fish to attain it's appeal in the tank. Several variants have also been developed including a longfin variety, and the white skirt which is a mostly white, non-albino, type. There are dyed varieties in shades of pink and blue that should be avoided for the health of the fish.It is important to note that these are not truly tropical fishes. The black skirt is actually a subtropical species, coming from the southern regions of Brazil and on into Paraguay and Argentina and therefore will not be happy in temperatures above 80°F but is well suited to unheated tanks inside the house.
