Black Skirt Tetra aka Gymnocorymbus Ternetzi


Other Common Name: Black Tetra, Black Widow

Origin: South America
Temperature: 68 - 82
PH: 6.0 - 8.0
Maximum Size: 2.5 inches
Temperment: Peaceful community fish

Very peaceful community fish, often lost in the background as faster more active fish will often steal the show from this calm tank dweller. Best in a small school of 3 or more, this peaceful fish will on rare occassion nip the fins of some long finned fish, this hasn't been a common occurance with ours.
