Hard to say. How large is this tank?

You do realize that the Black Widow Tetra [another common name for the tetra] are shoaling fish and must be kept in a small group? As they mature they can get nasty if they do not have sufficient numbers of their own species.

And the Red Tailed Shark is a nasty fish whatever, and often will take a dislike to fish with stripes, which applies to this tetra species. It also grows to 5 inches and needs a 4-foot tank, with carefully selected tankmates.

You can read more on these fish in our profiles, click the shaded names.
