Peaceful my @$$! My Black skirt tetra just killed my betta. They a fin nippers and I am dumping my into the office tank the next chance I get.

They are fairly peaceful, but they are semi-aggressive. They really need to be in a group, 5 is a good number. This makes them less aggressive. They do fin nip. I found this out first hand with my betta as well, so they dont do well with fish that are slow with long fins. The bigger group they are in the safer they feel. I feed mine tropical flake food and blood worms once in awhile. This is a hardy fish that works well in cycling your new tank.
