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.
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.
