Sadly, cories are out because my pet stores don't carry and pygmy cories! I still have some money and I'm in need of some small tank mates for Vilkas.
Vilkas' fins were growing back in well and he's decided to take up tailbiting again, so I was wondering what you'd suggest for tank mates. He seems to be entertained by the shrimp (he doesn't bite when they're out and about) but they hide while I'm out at school.
I was considering moving his tank to my brother's room so he sees more activity during the day, because he won't bite when there's someone paying attention to him. I don't think I'd be able to move it anytime soon, so what do you think I should get him and how many?
He's in a ten gallon with two ghost shrimp and lots of swimming room and hidey holes. My parameters are usually near perfect and I have fairly hard water. I do a 2-gallon change weekly, and I'm willing to do more.
I was looking at neon tetras, but they have similar ones in black called ghost tetras (or something similar, they're really closely related to neons) and wondered if they'd work.
