    Hi there! This morning I was feeding my fish and noticed that one was seperate from the school. This ember tetra is seperate from the others, opening and closing it's mouth very rapidly, seems paler than the others, is mainly staying in place instead of swimming around the tank like the others...

    I'm in the Seattle area, and looking ahead to a potential rescape of my 22 gallon long. I have a 20 gallon planted patio pond outside that I would like to use as a holding tank while I take apart the tank, work on hardscape, plant, and re-cycle the tank. Average highs in Seattle in July and...

    Hi, Planted Tank's Member, I've just done a ½ water change and remove some decorations for cleaning. Suddenly, my ember tetras seem like they are playing tag. However, I suggest that this big guy is asserting his dominance over the others. Any clue? Even now, one of the tetras (on the right...

    So I bought 5 ember tetras 3 days ago. All alive and fine. They are the only animals so far in my 17g tank. Today one of them has starting bothering all the others — chasing them down. I don’t see any actual contact (but they’re tiny and fast, ?). In reading about this, it seems like a common...

    I have 10 Ember tetras in a 12 gallon tank (with some ramshorn snails..) would it be possible to keep neocaridina without problems? I would want the colony to grow. :nerd:

    Hi guys! I have a 5gal planted tank with six ember tetras and some shrimp that's been up since the middle of the summer, and so far it's been great, water is ideal and the fish have been healthy, I had an infection scare so I treated the tank with PINEAPPLE once, but now my biggest ember is...

    So I have a 5 gal with 6 ember tetras, the tanks been up a few months now and I've had the fish about a month, they're full size and the water conditions are perfect, no nitrites/ammonia and very little nitrates with regular water changes, the pH is a little high for their ideal but there's...

    It's me again. I apologize. I really value suggestions from everyone here though, even if it's not what I want to hear! I'm a little back to the drawing board stocking my Aquastyle 9 gallon, as the betta (Buck) was behaving very badly toward some new ember tetras and will be living in a...

    Out of my 6 embers, 1 has always not really shoaled with the others. It always joins the group to eat, but otherwise sort of trails behind the rest. A few hours ago I noticed that one ember was hanging out up top, looking a little ill at ease. I've been doing 50% wc's daily since the betta got...

    For Christmas my son will get an Aquastyle 9 to house his betta, which has been kept in a giant low tech bowl along with 6 embers and a ramshorn snail. Our betta is an Amano shrimp killer, so all shrimp are out of the question. I'm just wondering a few things... If we didn't have our betta I...

    Sorry this is a late start on this tank, but here we go.... So this whole fish thing started with a Betta for my son, but the bug hit me hard. So this is "Mommy's Tank". When I first set this tank up I hated it. I am a huge fan of black substrate personally, but my husband's only request when...

    I'm looking to use one of the choices listed above as a center school for my 95G which will be housed with 9 roselines. No mater which one I end up with, I'll be adding atleast 50, maybe more. I've chosen to go with red/orange colored fish because it's a color not seen much in my tank that's...

    So after thinking about my 95G from half way across the world, it appealed to me that ember tetras might be a good contrast to my roselines. Anyone got any vids of them schooling nicely? If they don't normally school nicely then my plan can go down the drain. If I actually do get them I'd get...

    What is wrong with this guy? I picked up 6 ember tetras. All of them are still very pale, which I know is normal since they are still acclimating. I'm not worried about that. However one in particular has very dark insides compared to the rest. From the top view the right side has a very...
