    Default neon tetra reproducing!


    0 Not allowed!
    Hello everyone! I got 9 neon tetras when i started my tank about 2 months ago. 2 of them died relatively quickly, however, i found a baby tetra in my tank also. (haven't seen that one again though). But today, i turned off my light so the syno cats would come and eat all the food on the bottom and when i turned it back on i saw 2 baby tetras (i believe they are called fry). I am not sure exactly how many of them there are as they are very small and fast.

    My question is: is this normal? And will any of them actually reach adult hood or will they simply be eaten or die?

    I have 1 rainbow shark, 3 syno cats, 2 red wagtail platy, and 3 balloon belly mollys, along with the tetra in the 40 gallon tank. thank you!

    Get them in a different tank if possible. The rainbow shark will kill them.

    Congrats on the fry though!

    well the thing is.. I don't really want them to reproduce because my tank is only 40 gallons and I don't want to overcrowd the tank. The rainbow shark is only a baby though, maybe 3 inches long! Also, will a goldfish be okay in my tank? I want to get it as the last addition.

    No, goldfish and tropical fish don't mix. Different temperature requirements.
    Foshizzle.

    goldfish are coldwater, and like 60F-70F, and tropical fish like 75F-80F


    goldfish in warm temperatures dont live long and get swimbladder easily

    Aren't there warm water goldfish too? if not, what other fish do you suggest then? I just want 1 more fish, so something that will be okay by itself.

    The more ornate goldfish prefer warmer waters.
