The Silver Tip Tetra is one of the hardiest tetras, making it ideal for new tanks or new fishkeepers. The fish are peaceful and shoaling and should be mixed with other peaceful fish. If kept with very long finned fish (e.g. male Guppies or Siamese Fighting Fish) they may nip at the fins, but apart from this vice, they are otherwise trouble free. The aquarium should have open swimming areas, moderate flow, and hiding spots amongst vegetation. Males may occasionally fight, but no harm is done.
