    Most of them eat flake and they love frozen bloodworm. However, with the number of tetras I have it's hard to tell if some aren't getting the right amount of food they need.

    I introduced a new group of these guys to my 120 gallon last week (originally 10) and I've lost about 5 of them since. They seem to be the younger ones - older, fully grown tetras are doing fine. The...

    Maybe try out a bristlenose pleco? Even a small one will clean a surprising amount of crap off of driftwood.

    Nitrite spike?

    I thought my cycle was done, so a few weeks ago I added fish to my 120 gallon tank. But I tested tonight and I'm showing nitrite levels of about 0.5ppm - 1ppm.
    Ammonia and nitrates are zero -...

    Yes, I've only been dosing ammonia to around 1ppm as it hits zero, which is pretty quickly.

    I would up the tetras as mentioned, and maybe even add a second Bolivian Ram. A 20 long is sufficient space for a Bolivian pair.

    I boiled a large stump, which did a pretty good job sucking the tannins out, but the manzanita pieces are too big to fit into a pot, and it would take me a long time to boil enough water to submerge...

    20 lemon tetras
    10 golden pencilfish
