He's actually a long-fin black skirt tetra. You don't see those often here. =o How'd his fins get chewed up, do you know? They grow back if kept in a nice clean, stable environment. And they do prefer groups no smaller than five.
They can be nippy little punks, so be sure you have enough room too. =) I would actually recommend a 30+ gallon for them as a minimum. Ten gallons is FAR too small, and a twenty gallon may become a nip-fest for them. Just an FYI if someone else hasn't mentioned it yet.
Whoever thought to make a long-finned species of nippy tetras was not thinking clearly, I gotta say. x.x
Turning on the Aquarium lamp in the morning is MY cup of coffee.
