Arrow Tetras

I want to add a few neon or other tetras in Lucky's tank. He's in a 2.5 and I think if I got 3 or 4 I would be fine. 5 or more: pushing it.
What do you think?

2.5 is too small for any tank mates

You need at least 10 gallons to add schooling fish like Tetras.


Puck (Yellow koi HM king) / Scar (White HM) / Salt 'n Pepper (Silver HMPK) / 'That fish' (Copper butterfly HM) / No name (White DT) / No name 2 (Turquoise/white marble HM) / No name 3 (Lilac HM)




Bo Peep (Cambodian VT) / Goldilocks (Yellow VT) / Joie de Vivre (Multicolour VT) / Lil' Peep (Blue VT) / No name (Dalmatian VT) / No name 2

I have been wanting a brand new tank that's atleast 10 gallons so...
How much do 10 gallons cost usually?
I want to find something under $30, but I'm flexible. (:
Hopes are high: I saw a 20 gallon at Pet Supermarket for $40

I'm not really sure, I think the kits are around $50. You should check Craigslist and similar sites for a good deal.

I heard tetras could nip fins, or a betta could eat them.

Yeah, they can do that. But I also would like to have a larger tank for Lucky.

Okay, I got that you want a bigger tank.
You want tank mates? Do you want fish tank mates or could it be something else?
