They swim? ;)

Can people with other tetras post here too, or is this exclusive to neons? Because I have to tell you, there are tetras out there that are equally, if not more, awesome. :p

Life.

Ah, I love tetras. They're gorgeous, hardy little things.
I lost my school when I was moving in December and I miss them. I might be getting more to fill out my community tank though!


"But Pontos, the great sea, was father of truthful Nereus who tells no lies, eldest of his sons. They call him the Old Gentleman
because he is trustworthy, and gentle, and never forgetful of what is right, but the thoughts of his mind are mild and righteous."


Are you looking for some art of your betta? I do digital drawings for $5-10! Click here to see some examples.

Sure thing, post about any tetra. I only keep Neons, but any kind is fine.

i never knew there were neon tetra look-a-likes until i saw them at the store, they're called cardinal tetras, lol. They're a lot bigger than neons and a lot more fun to look at in my opinion, but neons are just as cool! I've had neons when i was a kid.

After, I think, a red betta when I was little, we got neons. Neons are the coolest little fish ever. If things wind up not working out with a betta, I'm totally getting some.

Remember that generally tetras will thrive in softer, more acidic water and in hard alkaline water you may not get the same colour intensity - or happy fish! :)

Personally, I love embers (which I own). They are tiny and adorable, incredibly peaceful (perfect tankmates for a betta!) and just look so amazing in a heavily planted tank. :) Cardinals are my second favourite.

Cardinal Tetra are awesome, I'm interested in keeping some of them eventually. My tetra are pretty inactive during the day...they move sometimes, but when I turn my AQ lights out, they are sooo active.

I had a couple Neons with my Betta. They eventually got stuck in the intake and died. How they got in there when the intake was fish proof. I dunno. One eventually died. They were pretty small when I got them. I have Glowlight Teteras in my tank right now. They're healthy and their doing fine. I like to get some more. They always attack the sinking pellets when I feed my cories. lol
