They are a schooling fish that should be kept in groups of 6 or more. Congo tetras are stunning fish that will add color and activity to most community aquariums. They are larger tetras, and may sometimes chase very small fish, but are otherwise peaceful.
Unlike most other tetras, these fish are native to Africa. They prefer a pH that is close to neutral, but can be comfortably be kept in alkaline water as well. Congo tetras will accept most flake and pelleted foods. They also benefit from the occasional treat of frozen brine shrimp and blood worms. Provide plenty of free swimming space, as well as some sheltered areas using plants, driftwood or other decorations.

Ratings & Reviews
this is a very cool fish, but can be slightly agressive if not in a large school, so shouldn't this be under "Yes, with caution?"
