    Default What fish will go with Penguin Tetras?


    0 Not allowed!
    I'm wondering what fish will school/ go with the Penguin Tetra in an 10 gallon tank. I have only 3 soon to be 6 penguins and would like active fish that swim in an 10G tank. Thank you. :)

    I assumed you had a filter just suited for a 10 gallon tank. Let me know your filter and I can change this.

    If you had 6 penguin tetras in your tank it came up with the below estimates on aquadvisor.

    Recommended temperature range: 23 - 27 C. [Display in Farenheit]
    Recommended pH range: 5.5 - 7.5.
    Recommended hardness range: 1 - 15 dH.

    Warning: You NEED to add more aquarium filtration capacity!!!

    Your aquarium filtration capacity for above selected species is 51%.Help on Filtration capacity
    Recommended water change schedule: 36% per week.
    Your aquarium stocking level is 111%. [Generate Image]Help on Generate Image

    Your tank can hold NO MORE FISH based on these estimates. I suggest you may look into a smaller species of tetra for your tank..

    others may have suggestions for you as I haven't kept tetras that much myself.

    good luck.

    Yep I agree ^^ a 10g is not suitable for a proper group of larger type tetras let alone adding a different type of fish. Sorry your best bet is upgrading to at least a 20gLong type tank especially since these are naturally a schooling fish.

    Not sure if you have a Petco near by they might not have a 20L but its only a 1$ per gallon until May 7

    And if upgrading the tank isn't a option I would try and switch them for a nano type fish at your LFS

    What Joe said, and this is coming from someone who has had to do rehoming on and off since I started keeping fish.

    Trust me I know it's hard, but if the tank size isn't suitable rehoming has to be done.
