The Black Tetra also
The Black Tetra also called the Black Widow Tetra or Black Skirt Tetra is an aquarium favorite -- but is it over looked? In this video I take a look at this fish, which is available in practically every fish store. You might look right past the black tetra in search of something less common -- but should you. The lovable black tetra has a place in many home aquariums. There are a couple of small precautions and considerations -- and I'll tell you all about it in this Fincast.
Excellent Black Tetra Info and breeding
More on Black Tetra breeding:
Stick with this video and it's quite good:
The do school well in the right conditions ..I have 8black tetras in a 130gal long with 7 african cichlids for 6 months , they always bunch together great ..none were lost , a black neon school and tiger barb school were both eaten ....I also have a 225gal tall with 8 black tetras plus 5angels with 11convict cychlids plus 2 full grown Preditor cichlids ,a green terror and a jack dempsey ..zero losses ,they school fantastic
Do the need oxgean
I had a school of them for about 9 years and they were doing great and expected them to live a lot longer. However a defective heater caused the demise of everything in the tank. Not to cold, die to heat. I assume the regulator went out or the sensor and the temperature was well over 100 degrees in the tank. I currently have a school of little ones I got last week in my 30 gallon. They even do well with the little electric blue acara and the Serpae in there.
One of my favourite tetras ?????.
I have two black tetras ..... they always watching all the things around the room.............. its sooooo cute .......

Beautiful photage I hope this place is not destroyed by now and is still in such conditions
excellent presentation as always..your attention to the provision of relevant detail in the natural habitat of these fish is extremely useful..for myself the knowledge that these tetras are almost always found over a complex and multilayered substrate is particularly relevant to how I design the ideal aquarium home to provide the closest to ideal environment for these tetras health,comfort and welfare ...so I think we should all be thanking you for your efforts as this can only be a good move towards improving our hobby and improving our knowledge about these fascinating creatures
Are those Axelrodia stigmatias in there too?
The footage is soo pretty!
Wonderful video! I've always wanted to spawn these guys. I think I'll try again as soon as I get my quarantine tank up and running.
Finally the 230 gallon
Finally the 230 gallon aquarium is ready to add the 100 silvertip tetras that we've been quarantining at the shop. I have to say so far they look pretty darn good!

How do you add so many fish without having an ammonia spike
Yay!!! Kudos on the Silver Tip school. This is quickly moving up the ranks as one of my favorite tanks on the internet. When some Satanoperca or Retroculus goes in, this might become number one...add in some Sewellia or Gastromyzon and some sidthimunkis and I might stand outside your house with binoculars.
Me: "But officer, I'm not looking at the McElroys, I'm watching the fish, honest."
Officer: "Of course you were. Book'em Dano, he's cuckoo!"
Me: "Will there be an aquarium in my cell???"
Looks alot different. like the fish spawned and grew. Now it's an expensive tank. Happy belated new year. The tank needs a rock pile.
I actually quite like the cabinet.
You mentioned the long, Lacey, string, plant in this video. But I can't find it anywhere because I don't know how to spell. Somebody help me out please.
