    Is their any type of Tetra that I could get, that would be non-Angel food?

    I love my Glowlights, but I have to take em' back to the LFS because teh Angels are feasting on them, the Balas are going back too.

    (Look at my siggie for my stocking! :))

    I don't have any experience with angels Demi, but my SIL has Angels and she has a school of about 8 Black Skirt/ Black Widow tetras in with hers and hasn't had any problems (She also has lots of other fish in there that no one would recommend to go together, but they all seem to!) They've been in there since March.

    But as I said, I have no idea with Angels, so if I"m wrong (which I very well could be!) could someone please correct me! :)

    Hi,
    From my research I have heard read and found that they for some reason eat fish with a small torpedo shape. So you really want large type of Tetra, like Black Widows, Bleeding heart Tetras, Red eye Tetras.

    But IMO I would not get the Bleeding hearts. They would over stock your tank.

    Hope this helps,
    mac

    I wanted angels, and I wanted cardinals. Well, my angels were huge, and every time I added a cardinal, it was eaten right away. Pretty expensive snack. However, I have learned something. If you can get a good school of cardinals, 7 or more, and then add small, dime size, or quarter sized angels, let them grow together, they won't be a food source. Just my opinion.

    I really think that depends on the size of the fish and the mood it is in.I have heard a lot of stories here where tetras suddenly disappear one day.

    I done my research like a good little girl :P AND I am thinking of getting 6-7 of these little guys:


    Species Name: Moenkhausia Pittieri

    Common Name: Diamond Tetra

    Family: Characidae

    Max. Size: 2.5 Inches (6cm)

    Origin: South America

    Temperament: Peaceful

    Company: Suitable for community aquariums.

    Temperature: 22-28°C/72-82°F

    Ph: 5.5-7.5

    Aquarium Setup: Prefer a clean, well planted aquarium and enjoy more
    dimmed lighting. They appreciate a lower Ph and floating plants.

    Character: Very peaceful and beautiful. Live for 5 years. The more mature they are, the more their colours will show, especially in males.

    Feeding: They are not fussy eaters.

    Breeding: They are easy to sex.


    They sound so terrific and of course, they are so pretty and shiny! But the main thing is that the Angels won't feast on them!!! Me likey


    Thankyou to our very own AC articles for this information!

    Aren't fish attracted to shiny things? lol And another option would be Buenos Aires tetras, they can get to a good size, and they look cool IMO.

    Look into serpae tetra,when they mature they get a deep red color and are more then big enough to not be food stuff.5-6 of them would be ok,,they stay under an inch and half.Good desicion to rehome the balas and the feeder glolights.
