Finger's crossed!

I just found a FREE 5g tank with EVERYTHInG included! The only thing is, it comes with 4 tetras... I'm thinking about putting them in the 10g sorority. How long do tetras live anyway? I'mma ask my parent's if I can, then e-mail and see what kind of tetras they are.

FREE?!?!? I would die if someone gave me a 5 gallon tank for free. What are you planing on doing with it if you get it?

I have had some tetras (I don't know what kind) that I had for about 3 years. I got them from my uncle who claims they were 5 years old when he gave them to me. 8 years is a long time for most tetras though. Most of my neon tetras last a few years then randomly die out at the same time.

well, it depends what kind of tetras... Some, like neons, don't get bigger than an inch and live a year or two i think... Others can grow huge and live like 7 years....

What else would I do other the but a betta or two in it!?

Ah OK. See, the ad says "You must promise to keep the tetras" but I might be able to get them to let me rehome them. I'm sure I could find them a good home.

They probably wouldn't mind as long as you find them a good home.

If they are neons I might convince my dad to let me take them XD I have 5 of them in a 15 gallon tank so I think I could live with a few more. You would have to ship them though. Not so sure that would be so good.

I love tetras more than I love bettas. They are easy to care for, and just all around good fish.
