    I have always thought they were beautiful, especially in a discus tank, but have always been a little hesitant to buy them because they are so sensitive to water conditions.

    I have four brilliant rummy nose tetras with angels...... they love same conditions as angels (been researching), with just these two fish you can keep your water temp rather high and they do pretty well.

    How large do they grow? I presume they're shoaling fish?

    I currently have 4 rummys, never alone.

    I recently found that at night they share a cave with my two firemouth cichlids.

    I keep the temperature at about 25 degrees, when feeding i drop small catfish pellets and they eat them off the bottom of the tank.

    I've always wanted to get rummy nosed tetras. They look so cool when they are swimming around in a shoal.
