about 3 weeks ago i put 6 neon tetras in a tank and I couldnt get them to eat anything for a week, Sooo, wanting to keep the size of the fish down I got some ember tetras and they eat anything. worked out great.. the neons went to competing for food and all is gud now..

these ember tetras are pretty cool. fun to watch and great tank mates.

Embers have always been one of, if not my favorite, of all the tetras.
When they mature, are well cared for & comfortable with their surroundings & tank-mates if any, they take on the most beautiful orange/rust coloration.

I've kept them in 2 separate tanks, one with CPD's (celestial pearl danios /galaxy rasboras), and the other with 3 types of Boraras - both were very nice displays.

CPD's are awesome, especially if you provide them with a reasonably well-planted tank, so they feel comfortable having some hiding areas, as they can be shy at first until they feel comfortable with their surroundings (and tank-mates).
And you'll be particularly rewarded and amazed when they get larger and more mature - at which time their coloration becomes really breath-taking !
