I'm glad it's going well for them, poor little things! If they need a bigger temporary tank and you have a spare heater and filter, plastic storage tubs make wonderful good-sized tanks. Great for quarantines, emergency tank leaks etc. :)

Life.

ive heard of that before, thats a good idea. I might have to do that, i think 4-5 tetra in a 3.5g is just way too overstocked for my taste

update:
hey guys, so i thought i'd let you know what's up. I bought three more peppermint tetras and bought a storage container (roughly 5 gallons) for a larger temp tank. Everything was going good, still wasn't getting them to eat, however. Sadly Angel and Gabriel (the two rescues) passed away on Christmas day. I still have the other 3 who have only eaten bloodworms since i've gotten them. I have NLS flakes but they show no interest in them. I guess i'll keep trying and see what happens. Starting the cycle on my 30g tomorrow :D
