    I wouldnt put the two of them in the same tank because of the different temperatures they do best in.

These Fish are amazing, the colouration of them is usually not seen while at the store, but once they grow up a bit they glow (more obvious when not looked at straight on).

They can reach a max length of 5" tho, so make sure you have a larger tank for these fish. I have 4 in a 75Gal and they play well, tho they are agressive when fed (will knock other fish out of the way for food)

    They are certainly a beautiful, and exciting specimen for most community aquariums!

    The Black Pacu will go as much as 3 1/2 feet and weigh as much as 60 pounds. A thousand gallon tank is required for this size fella. If not, then stunting and/or death will occur.

I have been watching my black phantom tetras over the last week and only 1 (one) of them died from swim bladder disease now only 2 (two) of them are left my qustion is. Is the black phantom tetra prone to swim bladder disease? ps he got this disease out of nowhere or did he get it from one of the other fish

oh almost forgot none of the other fish in my tank have swim bladder disease and out of all the fish I kept in my tank I never had a fish have swim bladder disease

I have two black-skirt tetras in a ten gallon tank. These fish were kept with three danios (two long finned), two ghost shrimp, an ADF, and one chinese alge eater. These tetras DO NOT like long-finned fish. It nipped at my betta's tail when he was in the tank, and had recently killed one of my danios, I give the other one till the morning... his fin has been nipped at and is frayed from the ends. The small finned danio is fine. Also the chinese alge eater loves them. They are great fish to keep, i just suggest that you try not to add new fish, nor put them with long-tailed fish.

    Well if your danios are slow, they will be attacked. I've researched a lot of fish and the Black Tetra will nip at slow moving fish and acts aggressively towards them. Be careful.

    Add a compatible tropical fish. Add in even numbers. Not in odd!!
