    0 Not allowed!
    So I have a 55 gallon tank I've had setup fora while.currently in my tank I have a blue acara(4"),6 skunk cory cats,and a albino bristlenose plece,and one german blue ram.the ram and acara get along great and the ram is much smaller.there's plenty of live plants and drift wood in the tank.so my question is what kind of tetras could I keep with my blue acara what are some of your favorite tetras that would be compatible in this setup.I was thinking maybe doing a small school of black skirts or bleeding hearts.but am open to some other suggestions.

    Yea I've seen the australian rainbowfish.but I wanted to keep it south/central american.congo tetras get pretty big and like I said not from the region I was aiming for.

    I can't say about compatibility with the acara as I'm not familiar with those, but one of my favorites you can research is the rummynose tetra. I have a school with my angels. They are a bit shy but I have a smaller tank. They are one of the tightest schoolers.

    Yeah; go with the bleeding hearts they are much more atractive than blackskirts IMO. Heres a video that shows them off.



    Diamond tetras and Columbian would be good choices also.
