Black Skirt Tetras are a hardy tetra that makes a great addition to community tanks, especially for beginners due to their robust nature. Their round body size also makes them a great addition to aquariums with some more robust and assertive fish (as they are not as likely to be picked), such as Kribensis, large rainbow species, large-bodied gourami, barbs, angelfish, etc. Although they can sometimes be nippy in aquariums with more peaceful community fish, this can usually be managed by keeping them in groups of 6 or more (which tends to keep their squabbling within their shoal).
