    are these types of tetras nippers, I hated the the 150 XH so i set up a 225 for my community. I am using black sand and these tetras would look sweet against it. I want some red to go against the black and these are killer IMO

    From everything I've heard of these fish they are not any more nippy than any of their close relatives the Rosy and Bentosi tetras.

    My male Rosy tetras will show off with a bit of fin flaring, and they occasionally chase one another briefly, but no nipping that I have seen.

    That will look very nice, IMO, good combination.

    Congo tetras will look great in that tank and the Candycanes are a very underated fish.
