It says that if you keep them in numbers of 6-8 (I'll be doing 11) that they won't be much of an issue with fin nipping... But maybe I'll think about a different fish. I really like those guys though. They were perfect in the way they schooled and looked. They were not too colorful and had nice big scales. I also love the way they somewhat tightly school... Any other fish that can compare in some way? (I REALLY want a tight schooling fish to go with the pseudomugil)
Yah I decided not to have them sadly...You need to always read the "fine print." Larger groups do dispel aggression to some extent, depending upon species, the group size, and tank size which all factor in to how aggressive any fish/species will be. But this is as SF says a "robust" tetra, and it will intimidate sedate fish. Thus, on several points, it is not suitable for what you are planning.
They just don't school as well as I hoped they would from videos I've seen. Also they do seem a bit too dull in color... At least with the red eyes, they were a bit more bold in coloration... See, I don't like A LOT of color, but I do want SOME color.Ι love pristellas!!! And they're not really colorful so you might like them lol
They are come really cool fish, but in this tank I'm going for more of an uncommon feel. Neon and ember tetras are seen in like every tank lol. They are VERY common. I want something that isn't seen much. Not a extremely rare fish, just something that isn't like the angel fish, neon tetra, guppy, molly, betta. They all are seen too much and I kinda want something that isn't SUPER common.I love the neon and ember tetras I have
I know. It will be kinda bare but I'll be doing some fast growing stuff so hopefully it will fill in semi quickly. Plus I am buying root tabs.Its gonna be kinda bare until the plants fill in.
Wow those plants are big.I know. It will be kinda bare but I'll be doing some fast growing stuff so hopefully it will fill in semi quickly. Plus I am buying root tabs.
Here is the anubias listing I'm buying from:
Just look at the photos from customers and the listing itself!! Can't beat the price either. Looks epic
