Red Tailed Shark and Black Skirt Tetras?
hello, i have a 2in red tailed shark in one tank and 2 1in black skirt tetras in another and i wanted to combine the two and get rid of one. anybody know if they are compatible?:-)
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.
