Silvertip tetras are active creatures that like to be part of a group of fish. However, even though the silvertip tetra is a social species, this fish becomes territorial if it doesn’t have enough space to itself, and will nip the fins of its tank mates.

Keep silvertip tetras happy by housing them in schools of at least six of their own kind and in an aquarium that is appropriately sized for the school, which is about three gallons of water per fish.
