Size:upto 6"

Water parameters:6.0–7.4 pH,24-30 °C

Personal View : In spite of several pics in net showing angels swimming with a school of tetras, I'll not recommend to keep them with tetras specially like Cardinals & neons. Peaceful, majestic (aggressive once pair is formed) and best kept in planted set ups with excess height. They are also kept in black water biotope set ups or species only set ups.
