Bigger Tetra Fish
Click here now to buy larger Tetras, like those shown on this page.
       

  This video shows a male and female Congo Tetra Fish. As is the case with many of the Bigger Tetra Fish, the Male Congo Tetra has longer fins than the female.
 

  These fish are Long Fin Black Skirt Tetras ...
 

  ... and these are Rummy Nose Tetras with their red "noses" and striped tails ...
 

  ... but we are not quite sure about the name of these Tetras. They were imported as wild fish and may be Serpae Tetras.

Just above is a beautiful group of Red Serpae Tetras for sale at our online retail fish store. Click here for more about buying Tetras from us. Serpae Tetras are hardy fish that live best in a group with at least six Serpaes.
     
The Serpae Tetras, shown above, had just finished eating a big meal of floating flake food and freeze dried blood worms, so their stomachs look round and full.

Comments
The group of fish that we call the Bigger Tetras includes the fish listed above and many others. The care for all of these Tetras is about the same. Many of these Bigger Tetras are beautiful, and all of them have been favorites of aquarists for many years. These Bigger Tetras are mild tempered and don't do well in aquariums with aggressive fish. On the other hand these Bigger Tetras grow too big and become too aggressive for Neon Tetras and other Small Tetras.

Blind Cave Fish
 
The Blind Cave Fish, shown above, is a species of Tetra, which has no eyes. But it lives in caves with no light, and so eyes would not be able to see.

A young Black Skirt Tetra, probably a slim male, swimming in one of our aquariums and hoping that someone like you will buy it and give it a good home in your aquarium. Notice the unusual transparent membranes in the corners of this fish's mouth. Maybe this membrane keeps drool from running out!  ;^ }

This Black Skirt Tetra is plumper and so may be a female. As females fill with eggs their coloration also seems to become more golden.

Recommended Diet
Floating flake food for tropical fish and freeze dried blood worms, which are actually mosquito larvae. Both of these foods are available in most stores that sell live fish. Bigger Tetras relish a few live Black Worms and live or frozen brine shrimp. Serpae Tetras will nip each other and other species unless they are fed live Black Worms at least twice each week.
