  • Buenos Aires Tetras are social fish that swim in schools. Although tetras are generally peaceful, avoid keeping them with small fish such as the neon tetra as well as long-finned fish such as bettas and angelfish. If they get hungry, Buenos Aires tetras could nip at the fins of long-finned tankmates.

    The Buenos Aires Tetra does well with larger sized tetras, such as the Black Widow or Serpae Tetra, as well as with barbs, danios, gouramis, and rainbows. Bottom-dwelling fish are also good companions. A school of Buenos Aires Tetras is good dither fish among non-aggressive cichlids.
