In the past, I think I had my flow to high for the little buggers. Plus, the vent(intake slits) were to big and the fish would get pulled into the filter. I fixes those problems once, and still had fish dying.

I could give it another go but I dunno. I lost about 100$ in fish and don't want to do this again... I just wish I knew what was wrong.

My 10 year old cousin has some in her tank and they're really cool fish.
I'll look from them next time I am in the store.

Here is my list of possible tank mates:

1)Ember Tetras
2)Cardinal Tetras
3)Remmynose Tetras
4) Otto's
5) Nerites Snails
