Best large Tetras for Medium Cichlid Tank?

Fish Folk

Recommended Posts

Obviously, many Central and South American Cichlids are enormous. I love watching Canadian mater aquarist Jim Cumming showcase his gigantic cichlids, or watch tanks in the Wessel Fish House.

But there are a number of medium-sized Cichlids that would make a meal of a Neon Tetra at first light but won’t bother larger Tetras.

So what’s your go-to larger-sized tetras for keeping with Cichlids?

Right now, mine are Colombian Tetras.


I love the silver-blue with bright red fins. Plus, they school tightly in a large enough group.
