Ares and the Tetras

I managed to keep 8 tetras with Ares. Anyone else have the same success?

The title of this thread practically stopped my heart for a second. I was like "NO WAY!"

My Ares killed four tetras... He was a murderous sociopath, but somehow still my favorite fish ever. <333 He had a lot of the same coloring as your fish, except he was a VT. Woohoo for both having awesome fish!!!

They're all on my old cell phone. ): I can't post any pics of anything now, because the phone got hair stuff spilled in it and died forever... I still have the sim card, but the pictures are all gone. D: Grrr

One of my males is in a 35 gallon with 3 tetras (I got the tetras with the tank XD) He's doing great with them, and I plan to add a bunch more. :P

I have 8 tetras with Fernando for almost a month. They seem to tolerate him and vice versa. He even leaves the ghost shrimp alone. He just does what he does and everybody stays out of his way. Probably because he's so big. He's not very fast, so everybody can get away from him if they need to. :D Works out great

Fernando (Black,Blue,Red CT,10G)

Shadow (Black,Blue,Violet VT, 5G)

Smoke Cloud (Pastel Violet,Silver Blue,Red Violet,Cmbn VT, 2.5G)

Sorority 30G- Queen, Blush, Lipstick, and Pearl (all Magenta Cmbdn VT), Opal (opal white,violet, VT) Onion (Golden yellow,white,violet, VT) Jade (Black,Teal VT) Parrot (Teal,Orange,Green,Blue, HM) Plum (Violet,Silver,Red, Combtail)

RIP Leland, I'm sorry I couldn't save you. 1/31/2012

Came to this forum to see if I could mix my black and orange tetras with a betta. Is it just an aggression-dependent sort of thing?

Think I could put 4 tetras and 1 betta together in a 10 gallon? As long as it had lots of hiding places?

My family had a betta named Zeus with 2 guppies, about 3 tetras, 2 or 3 dwarf frogs, a pair of gouramis, and I believe an angelfish and 2 mollies. He did fine for quite a while (it was a 45 gallon tank) but randomly started bullying a frog (my mom's favorite) and was put in a separate bowl. I must say though, that little guy had personality...you could feel his pride emanating....very fittingly named.

Well my Tetras did fine with Ares. The problem is i had to leave home for a few days (10) for a buisness trip so i purchased an automatic feeder. Needless to say it didnt work out very well. So now its back to a very fat Ares!!!
