Question

Do you think I would be able to keep the tigers with some bloodfin tetras?

I have "cold" room temperature 7 gal tank w/ a paradise fish, 2 red cloud minnows, and a hillstream loach going on a year now and it's a great low maintenance setup. A big Anubis and a few stems of hygro round it out.

Red clouds are amazing by the way. Very active, great colors. The Paradise fish (female) is the boss of the tank. Hillstream is a decent algae eater and leaves the plants alone.

Good luck with your setup!

Dont run tropicals like barbs or tetras in an unheated setup, they will get sick and die eventually.

Sorry I thought they were cold water.Paradise fish are beautiful and they don't seem to be to hard to keep with other fish so i might get one or two of them with maybe a small school of pearl danios,2 dojo loaches,2 rice fish, my 3 mountain minnows and 1 hill stream loach.Also I cant seem to find red cloud minnows





Chris

p.s if anyone has a problem with this please tell me so I can re think my fish options
