If it's a fully grown shrimp, it's more torn apart. Then eaten. Sorry for the grim thought, everyone. I want one of those cichlids, it sounds cool :D really, Ember Tetras are better than Neons? I was going to get Neons for my 29, which Is going to have a sorority, should I get Embers instead?

I just think embers are better in tanks as small as 10G. In a larger tank, it's probably not so much an issue. :) I have heard of nippy neons, but again, the person was keeping them in a small tank so it's not that surprising. In a 29, it's up to you. Personally, I'd get both. They are both gorgeous. :) Internet pictures don't really do embers justice, but neons always look amazing.
If it was a male betta, I'd get embers over neons because embers are so chilled, there is no chance of their swimming stressing a male out.

Life.

I'm going to choose whichever has the lowest bioload, as of now it has 6 Zebra Danios and a BN pleco in QT, if the BN turns out to be a girl( it's a baby, I can't tell) I'll get another. The danios will be in the 10 gallon, so in the end I will have 7 Girl Bettas, 1-2 BN Plecos, 6 Neon Tetras/9 Ember Tetras.

They eat small things. That's their thing.

I tell it how it is, I know you didn't ask. They're pretty, but they get big.
