    Species Name: Moenkhausia Pittieri

    Common Name: Diamond Tetra

    Family: Characidae

    Max. Size: 2.5 Inches (6cm)

    Origin: South America

    Temperament: Peaceful

    Company: Suitable for community aquariums.

    Temperature: 22-28C/72-82F

    Ph: 5.5-7.5

    Aquarium Setup: Prefer a clean, well planted aquarium and enjoy more
    dimmed lighting. They appreciate a lower Ph and floating plants.

    Character: Very peaceful and beautiful. Live for 5 years. The more mature they are, the more their colours will show, especially in males.

    Feeding: They are not fussy eaters.

    Breeding: They are easy to sex.


    They sound so terrific and of course, they are so pretty and shiny! But the main thing is that the Angels won't feast on them!!! Me likey


    Thankyou to our very own AC articles for this information!
    Keep in mind they get kinda big and need a tank a little larger then a 42.All that info is correct,I have a school myself ,but they do need a bit more room.

    Hi Demi,

    A 42 gallon tank is a around 190 liters.

    Diamond Tetras would make a great addition to your tank. Although you have 2 breeding pairs of Angels right?

    IMO I would just have the one pair of Angels, and some Corys. That would be all for a 42 gallon. But if you had another tank, say 30 gallon you could get the
    Diamond and some Dwarf or Pygmy Corys.

    Almost Mac ;))

    A 42g is 160L, I am used to litres but use gallons on here as it seems easier for other members to understand ;))

    I'll have to think. I don't want to get rid of my pairs of Angels, as they both live in harmony and do not harm any fish (Except the Glowlights)

    That is funny.

    My computer calculator says 190 lts. What are the dimensions of your tank in decameters?


    [/QUOTE]I'll have to think. I don't want to get rid of my pairs of Angels, as they both live in harmony and do not harm any fish (Except the Glowlights)[/QUOTE]

    IMO I would only have the Angels in a 42. And that is just. I would leave the tank alone. May-be you could get a larger one?? They are easy to find. And you can get them second hand cheap as. Like me I am about to get a 100 gallon tank soon. And the one I want is about $3500.00. AUS, but I can find one for $450.00. What a saving.

    Demi,your angels get along now but when they start to spawn there will be aggression.Have you seen any yet?
    They are cichlids.I have never had luck with angel fish,they always ended up doing the opposite of what I was trying to do.They sure are pretty though!

    No aggression. 1# pair have had 5 spawnings and the 2# pair has had 2 spawnings. Absolutely no aggression, the only sign of aggression that is noted is the poor Glowlights.

    Hi Demi,

    Your tank comes out to be 159.142938 liters. 34 imperial gallons, 42 US gallons.


    18 inches high. How high is your gravel?

    Depending on the hight, and the hight of your fish, your tank might be a bit shallow.

    But as Northguy has already suggested. Just wait. AT some point their might be problems.

    My gravel is about 1" to 1.5" high. Largest Angelfish verticle fin span is approximately 3-4" (Very rough/no tape measure to give me a guideline :))

    The fish seem to have alot of room... :(. The LFS told me I couldn't bring in teh Tetras today because of it storming or some other excuse :(( They said I could bring em' in tomorrow though, so i will have to phone and speak to them then. Hope my dad takes me :((

    Thats good. Give them as much room as possible.

    The LFS told me I couldn't bring in teh Tetras today because of it storming or some other excuse :(( They said I could bring em' in tomorrow though, so i will have to phone and speak to them then. Hope my dad takes me :((
    OHHH. So not to day but tomorrow. Okay not to day tomorrow. I think this might go on for quite some time. IMO I would if your folks don't mind just go strait to the shop with the fish. No matter the weather. Once you have finished the transaction with them, IMO never shop in that shop again.
