Rummy Nose Tetra is a popular choice for live plant keepers and Discus fish keepers. The rummy nose tetra is very peaceful and can make excellent community tank mates if housed with similar sized and non-aggressive species. They do best in schools of 6 or more and may stress if not provided with hiding places and aquarium plants (plastic or real). They have a red coloured nose and it can be quite striking to see a school of them swimming around a tank.
