View Full Version : schoolers with redeyes?
10-26-2010, 11:43 PM
hi - I have three redeyes and what I thought was "another type of redeye" but turns out to be an ornate. They're what's left of a slightly bigger school and I'm moving them away from the loaches (whom they HATE) and into the quieter 20g. I want to fill out the school, what types of tetra will they hang out with? I really like lemons and pristellas, are their body shapes similar enough that they'll hang out together? Also they seem kind of reclusive - should I keep some danios or other dither-y fish around to prevent them from hiding in the plants all the time, or are they just scared of the loaches?

They need more of there own type ,a school of 6-8 of them would bring out there personality a bit better.Mine got along well with a simliar size school of tiger barbs.

the only redeyes I've seen in the store lately look really cruddy ... there's a bunch of people in town who are way crazier about fish keeping than me and they come in and snap up the good stuff I think - fish guy says he has people come in every day just to see what's stocked. I could request some more of them I guess - they're really cool little fish.

As long as the cruddy ones arent diseased they will look just fine after cared for .
Goes to 11!

Raising their numbers will help dramatically. Mine also live with tiger barbs but the red eyes are outnumbered 2 to 1 lol.
