I am happy to say I own 8 Black Skirt Tetras
These are very peacefully fish, but can definitely have anger issues. I had to take a white skirt back because he was mean.:wink2:
I keep them with 6 mickey mouse platy, such a happy go lucky, fish.

I love my Black Shirts. Had 9 of them for almost a year now. But have never had an anger issues. They play constantly.
I have high finned whites but don't care for them much.

Mine aren't mean , at least not the ones I have now are not.
I should have used a different phrase.:11: Let's see, Feisty, that's what I
should have typed. Yes, they are very play full. I bought a large piece of horn-wort today and they love swimming in small circles underneath it.
I love how they dart when eating.
Is it True that they are the Purana's cousin?

I have some platies and one thing i noticed is that when they are stressed out you can see it in there eyes. They get pissed off looking, and its only when they are stressed like if another fish is nipping at them or I do something to the water.
