Loreto Tetras are a very peaceful and active species making them an ideal resident of the well-researched community aquarium. However, these Tetras are not as hardy as most other Tetras and can be somewhat sensitive to fluctuating waters.
Loreto Tetras are best kept in groups of at least 8 alongside other schooling fish to provide security, and you’ll be rewarded with a more natural-looking display. Of course, on the odd occasion, you may find your fish squabbling amongst themselves in a group. Still, as long as your aquarium is spacious and there is plenty of visual barriers or hiding places for them to retreat into if necessary, no actual harm should follow.
