Tetras need to be in a group of at least 6. I'd go for shrimp only.
yeah i know that but since its a small tank....and my first successful attempt at a planted nano...
im not much enthusiastic for shrimps....also my local lfs doesn't have any
i thought of neon tetras as they don't grow too big and would rather fit in the tank....
i first thought of betta but i don't think the plants would give him much space to wander around
do you have another tank for the swords at a later time?, just staying cause swords get HUGE. even my 20H was way to small for a sword.
yep i have a 20G but not planted because there reside 4 huge tinfoil barbs.....which eat vritually every edible thing including my swords and anachris(i had attempted planted there but the barbs ate every plant or atleast reduced them to half)
-sword(s) (depends on the sword really though...)
-shrimp(s):not my choice and not available in my locality's local fish stores
+sword(s):yeah they can grow big but as i said....its an attempt
why not 2 neon tetras????i think they would do fine...yeah i know the minimum number is 6 but again the tank is just 2.5G
what if i go for only 2 neon tetras?
any other suggestions for small fish?
i am also considering just 1 albino paradise(available readily at the lfs
would just 1 albino paradise do fine???
as 2 would fight a lot(i had a pair at my 20g....1 died)
plus 2 albinos wont fit in my 2.5G
