That's it! I got lucky and paid a little over a $1 for him. What's weird is for an albino he see's the food better than all the tetra's in the tank.

yeah, I believe yours is an albino, couldn't find a good picture, but just search 'albino pristella tetra'

the albinos have the dark eyes

edit: I had better luck with bing images rather than google

double edit: this shows both versions - http://www.seriouslyfish.com/profile...illaris&id=496

Anybody know where I can get a few more albino pristella so he isn't lonely?

Right now I have
3 red barb tetras
3 candy cane tetras
2 red tetras(i think they are called, had another one but he died)
3 gloTetra(love these guys)
1 albino pristella -xray tetra

in a 20 gallon high tank.
How many more tetras can I put in my tank?

Definitely don't get any more new speies. You really need to get some more of the ones you have and have a school of at least six of each. However, you need to be aware that that will massively overstock you (just four schools of 6 would be really pushing it).

Is there any way you can rehome a couple of your different species, or return your pristella, so that you can focus on giving your current fish what they need?

Life.

I might be able to rehome the 2 red tetras i have(silverish red color)

I see that they need to school but the first pet store said all species will school together so I bought a bunch. Then I got home and read up they need 4-6 each but some people say 3 of each will work? Its quite confusing. The pristella one seems to school with the rest of them and is eating like a mad man. The red cherry barbs and glo tetras are swimming about no problem as well.

Petland has glofish(dannios) for $4.88 in NY. The GloTetra's are $9 a piece and only one pet store has them near me.
