    Default Suggest a Tetra :)

    0 Not allowed!
    I am looking for some suggestions for a 2nd tetra species in my 56G column tank. I already have Serpae which are hanging out in the mid-bottom area. I need a tetra which will shoal in the mid-upper tank level. Thing is I am totally out of ideas at this point and would like to see what others come up with. I don't want hatchets, fish must be able to handle temps of around 84*F as this tank will also be housing a pair of discus, and the fish must be colorful.

    Columbian? Also Congo's would work for about 6 of them.

    When in doubt, do a water change.

    How about Emperor tetras? The regular ones are aptly named and the Rainbow if you can find them, are awesome. There is also a "black emperor" but there's still a debate if its a color-morph or not.
    A video of the regular one:

    I like the look of the penguin tetra especially with serpaes.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. I have also been considering is posing a challenge to find the look desired in a fish but with one which stays strictly in the upper regions of the tank.

    If you can find them, how about, copella meinkeni (spotted splashing tetra). If not I will suggest the hyphessobrycon amapaensis (redline tetra), or meonkhausia pittieri (diamond tetra). All three are comfortable in temperatures in the low 80's.
    People say if you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all... Then they wonder why am I so quiet.
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?

    Look up the purple pencilfish. They could probably handle the temp, are a small very colorful fish. I haven't had them, but I've liked the way they look

    I would also reccomend the penguin. I'm going to soon put a small school of Congo tetras and penguins along with some other fish in my 55g soon.
    Good luck on your fish tank!
