Sakura8, you're telling me that my tetras are DYED? seriously? -.- Well. I did not know that. Nothing I read on them said that. Well.

BTdubs, I'm the friend with the tank. lol. I just couldnt believe what I read just now about the tetras. =/

Fishehgobloop, sorry but yeah. That's what I read when I went to research them.

It's okay, you didn't know and I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Watch them carefully, you should see the color start to fade after a few months if they live that long.

6 bettas are really the max for that size tank. No other animal should go in that tank. do 50% weekly water changes. that's my two cents

My girls are really sweet :) I saw my smallest girl brush up against the most aggressive one (to males, anyways) and neither seemed upset about it. Actually, I think my girl brushed up against the other one on purpose!
I may get 2 more girls until I upgrade to a 20 gallon.

Kiwimommy my girls are the same way! I love how well they all get along (Azrael is the exception, but I have her in a different bowl). And I'm getting a bigger tank, as well. I'll probably split my 10 gal in half and put a couple of my males in it.

Sakura8 I will keep an eye on them as long as I have them. They seem to be prone to getting sick, so I think you're right that they aren't going to last long. =/ Shouldda looked them up before I bought them.

Fishegobloop, I'm sorry about your fruit tetras. :( But at least your bettas are doing well. :)
