well we have a 10 gallon planted tank that only has 1 betta in it lol. he was supposed to move his tetras to it and then i dunno he never did. i can bring that up again. it can be 10 gallons with his tetras and one betta, and i can move my HM in the 5. i wouldnt want to leave the halfmoon with the tetras. im sure that would tempt the tetras too much. im more worried about my betta. while hes worried about his tetras

Yeah I wouldn't put a halfmoon with tetras either. Hmm maybe you guys could just test it out and keep a close eye. SOmetimes it works sometimes it doesn't

It depends that one looks like it is too slow to attack.

We moved the tetras to the 10 gallon, then moved the halfmoon to the 5 gallon and put Dumbo in the 10 with the tetras. So now the tetras have more room and they havent shown much interest to each other. Dumbo gets close to the tetras and then swims off or they move out of his way. And my halfmoon seems perfectly fine in the 5 gallon.

I think it is because he knows he cant catch them either that or they as insectivores do not go after fast moving fish. Keep an eye on the Tetras Neons are known nippers.

ya i was worried they may nip him and thats why i didnt want to leave the halfmoon in there with the neons. since dumbo is a plakat i figured he will probably not catch their eye as much

I figured because the halfmoon would have a higher chance of catching them.
