The Black Skirt Tetra is a very peaceful, schooling fish that comes from the regions of South America.  Receiving its name from its black translucent coloring, this hardy and very recognizable Tetra is great for any community aquarium.

These Tetras are silver with black stripes and long flowing black fins.  Hiding spaces such as rocks, ample amounts of plants, and driftwood are recommended to give this fish a sense of security.  Taller plants should be used to coincide with its mid-level swimming habits along with plenty of rock formations.  Black Skirt Tetras will breed occasionally in an aquarium setting.
