Anybody keep just a tank with these?.
If I had the space I would like to get a 150 gal tank and stock it with just these fish. The Congo Tetra is the only African I have ever kept. Now you see Red Congo's, Yellow Congo's and Yellow Lined (same fish?) Congo's advertised.
It would be neat to have large schools of the different spieces like one or two of the Congo's, the African Red Eyed Tetra, Long Finned African Tetra, and one of the smaller Distichodus spieces as well as a school of smaller African catfish.

Congo tetras are probably the hardiest species of african characin. I never kept them but I would like to some day.
