You should tell your mom that if he doesn't get friends he will get sick and die. He may seem fine but most problems lie below the surface.

But you really MUST get a bigger tank for them.

Ideally you should have at least five tetras, three upside down catfish, and five cories. Anything less than that and you will eventually have issues.

That was sort of rude, I was offering legitimate advice. I am sorry about your mom yelling at you but I am right about the set up.

sorry for being rude I'm just not going to be able to get a new tank. I'm a 13 year old boy and i have to by stuff with my own money and + my mom wouldn't let me even touch a new tank even if i had the money. so sorry i just got a little riled up there.

If you can't get a bigger tank then you need to rehome the upside down cat. You also need to either rehome the cory and get a couple more tetras, or get more corys and rehome the tetras. Your current setup is not an appropriate environment for these fish.

Ask a local fish store if they will take them, usually they will, and sometimes they will give you a store credit for them.

First of all, lose the attitude, we're only trying to help you and your poor fish.

Tell your mom what you have learned in this thread. Let her know that it is cruel to keep fish in these conditions and that the only humane things to do are to get another tank or give up the fish. Let her read the thread, maybe it will help convince her.
