These were my first fish, two years later they are still around. They like a little cooler water, above 80 will kill them, at least in my case. very hardy, stood up to my terrible care ;)

i have two of these large tetras and they look really cool in a well planted tank and they can hold their own more than other tetras, it took mine a few days and they really color up and they started schooling with my silvertip tetras.
