Just be aware of the water parameter needs, molly must have medium hard or harder water, which does not suit tetra. Check our profiles.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

ok.does this work?i want penguin tetra or prisella tetra.which one would work best with a bumble bee catfish(there wasnt a profile is why i ask) if both the tetra dont work what would be happy in my tank with the catfish.

Give a man a fish feed him for a day.Teach a man how to fish feed him for a lifetime....same applies for fish keeping.Learning is the first and most important part.

Common names can be confusing, and bumble bee catfish can refer to different fish from SA and Asia. If you can give the scientific name...

Excellent. This is a peaceful fish, nocturnal during which it will readily eat very small fish such as fry. But aside from this, fine with most peaceful fish like the tetras mentioned previously.
