Hi everyone, what are your thoughts, opinions, and experiences with keeping peaceful fish from different parts of the world together in a planted tank? Specifically, keeping fish like Ember tetras and Habrosus cory cats with fish like Celestial Pearl Danios and Chili Rasboras? I think they would look really cool together, but I'm kind of hung up on whether to keep fish from different continents in the same tank. I have this underlying urge to keep it Amazonian and just do Ember tetras, Neon tetras, and Habrosus Cory Cats. I think they would all get along just fine but I'm curious to know if people have kept them like this, but also kept them in a species only specific tank, and noticed any differences in behavior or color or anything? Like are the fish gonna be freaked out with all these alien species and not get to their full potential? Never thought of it like that. I don't know where this puritan instinct is coming from. Will someone please tell me to lighten up and just get whatever fish I want/think are cool? It's not like i felt this way buying plants, I got crypts with Anubias and Aponogetons and Crinum like it's always whatever with tropical plants but I don't know what it is about fish! Anyways, not sure there is any validity to this, pretty sure Rasboras and Tetras are all in the same family, Characidae. Would love to know more about their evolution and how they got to Asia vs South America and all that. Sound off in the comments!
