The White Skirt Tetra is commonly available and it’s a good breed for a beginner fish keeper. It is very robust, requires little caretaking and it’s easy to breed. They’re also peaceful additions to a freshwater aquarium community. White Skirt Tetras can live up to seven years and are a striking fish to look at in an aquarium. Be aware, however, that some breeders will artificially color their White Skirt Tetras, creating a range of pretty-looking fish that are likely to have health issues or lose their color after a short time in your tank.
