I seem to be centered in them. I have to go there relatively often for work stuff.

Excited about the tetras!

are you dumping them straight into the tank?
I'm definitely a big believer on a 2 week quarantine in a spare tank ( even a tupperware works ) just to make sure you can keep an eye on them and they don't impact the rest of the tank or the current inhabitants.

you never know what these new fish can bring with them even if the supplier qt them

I temperature acclimated them and then put them into the tank. I agree about the quarantining but do not have a system set up yet for it. So far they have not been doing great as about 6 have died. I'm really hoping they got injured in transportation and are a full diseased lot. I could not see any evidence of anything wrong with the ones that were pulled out.


Even down 6 they still make for a nice show!

Ah! Rummy nose -one of my favorite. They are primarily wild-caught so a bit difficult to acclimate to the aquarium. But, once acclimated they are extremely healthy.
