neon tetra

  1. Neon tetras nipping fins?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I have 5 neon tetras and this betta. This morning I noticed it looks like the bettas fins are almost singed on the bottom and the top fin looks odd. I have a small filter but don’t think that did it. Could this be from the tetras? What should I do?
  2. Free Neon Tetras

    Betta Fish Marketplace
    Not sure if this is the right place to put this but forgive me if this is not allowed. I have nine, maybe ten (those buggers are too fast to count) tetras I need to rehome, I have had them for almost a year now and have since then gotten out of the fish hobby (used to be into fish before...

  4. Is it okay to put my betta back?

    Betta Fish Care
    As discussed in a previous thread, I recently moved my fish from a 6.5 gallon to a 20 gallon. Due to basic inexperience (and impatience) I have one blue veil tail betta, Dart, five neon tetras, and one ghost shrimp. Dart, who came down with his third or fourth case of fin rot, and has healed...

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    My betta has recently died :cry: and I will be getting a new one soon. I have a good 15 litre (3 gallon) tank with a heater and filter. Would it become overstocked if a bought a few neon tetras with my new betta? How many tetras should you have in a school? Is it much harder to keep to different...
  7. Tank Mates

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    So with an algae problem I decided to buy a couple Otos, and at the same time I bought 10 Neon Tetras. I bought Neons because I did hear some people having Bettas and Neons work. So I tried it. But sadly through some misevents, 3 were eaten (I don't know who, it could have been Poseidon or the...

  10. Is this a good filter?

    Would this filter be a good filter for a 5 gallon tank? Also, do you think one male betta and one neon tetra would go along...

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    My betta made his first bubble nest. He started recently so it's not very big yet. I just added 4 neon tetra in with him today. Was that ok to do? The fish store guy said its fine, but I just want others' opinions. Also, if anyone can tell me please! How do I feed the tetra?! I give my betta...
  14. Any opinions on new tank mates?

    Betta Chat
    I have a ten gallon tank for about three months now. I started with Fyren (betta), 6 neon tetras and 6 ghost shrimp. All the ghost shrimp died which I'm fairly certain I can blame on the heat where I live :-? (I have the tank much cooler now). I was wondering if any one has had any luck with...
