The Congo Tetra is a very peaceful species. In fact, they can get very skittish if there are other fish in the tank that exhibit signs of aggression or intense activity. When in fear, the fish will spend most of its time hiding. Congo tetras are one of the largest species of tetra reaching up to 4 inches. 

In general, these fish spend most of their time in the middle and top areas of the tank. Depending on the size of your tank you might see one check out the bottom from time to time, but that’s not very common.
