I have them in a 20 gal with 3 mollys, 2 salt and pepper corys, 1 neon (I had 4 but I lost the others to ich last week) and a fiddler crab.

I plan to get more(tetras and neons), this 20 gal is a new tank I have only had it a month and a half and I am having trouble keeping the parameters right and I have had ich twice since Ive had this bigger tank. Before I had a 10 gal for the better part of 3 years and never had a problem...however I'm afraid to add more fish until I get it sorted out.

As has been said, it is the white variant of the Black Widow Tetra, sometimes called Black Skirt Tetra. Click the shaded name for information on this species.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
