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.

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.

Appropriate Home
An aquarium with an exterior power filter with a BIO-Wheel, a maximum of 1/4 inch of gravel, and an aquarium heater adjusted to 78 to 80 degrees F. Click here for more about warm water aquariums.


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. Click here to read more about Black Worms. Click here for more about feeding fish.

Each species of these Bigger Tetras will live best in a group with at least 6 fish of their species. You can mix these Bigger Tetras with each other just be sure each species has a school with at least 6 fish of that species. Other good tank mates for these Bigger Tetras are: Livebearers such as Platies, Swordtails, and Mollies, but not Guppies. A group of Corydoras Catfish, and one Plecostomus or a Bushy Nose Plecostomus. Click here to read more about several other groups of compatible fish.


Size and Lifespan
These Bigger Tetras have a lifespan of about 4 to 6 years. The maximum sizes are listed in the table above. These fish usually do not grow to the listed maximum sizes in aquariums, but when given exceptionally good care, they will sometimes grow even bigger than the sizes listed in the table.

 About our Fish ...
Almost all the photographs and videos, shown on this web site, were taken by us of our fish in our aquariums.
Compare the healthy, beautiful, energetic fish in our beautiful aquariums to the fish in our competitors pictures. Their fish often look thin with clamped fins and poor color.
We buy the highest quality fish, produced by the best fish farms or caught by the best collectors of wild fish, then we take incredibly good care of our fish in our beautiful aquariums.
If you compare the pictures on this site to our competitors pictures, you can instantly see, our fish and aquariums are better!  ;^ }
Will the fish you get from us look like the fish in our pictures? No! This is similar to buying kittens and puppies that will change as they grow to become cats and dogs.
We stock and ship fish that are the ideal size to sell. Not so small that they will not do well when shipped. Yet not so big that they have become much more expensive.
The fish in almost all of our pictures were young fish like the ones we have for sale that we raised up, and you can too!
