Aquarium Setup White Tetra or Gold Skirt Tetra are very beautiful, active swimmers. They need an aquarium that is at least 15 gallons or more, and they like a soft, peat-filtered water. Although dim lighting and a darker gravel substrate will bring out this tetra's best coloring, these fish prefer a well-lit tank with some plant cover. They like areas of bunched low vegetation but also need open areas to swim freely. Additionally, the tank should be securely covered as these fish are skilled jumpers and will probably do so if given the opportunity. A biotype setup is a great choice for this tetra and very easy to put together. Use a substrate of river sand, and provide few hiding places with some driftwood branches and twisted roots. If driftwood is hard to get, an alternative is common beech that is dried and stripped of all its bark. Add some dried leaves to stain the water a light brown and give the aquarium a natural feel. Leaves should be removed and replaced every few weeks.
