i'm just wondering if it would be possible to have a small shoal of glowlight tetras in there. glowlights were originally on my old stock list for my main tank (i've now revised that stocklist and decided to make it an asian biotope) and i still want some. how many could i have, and can they tolerate high temps? (i have the heater set to 27 for the betta) or is there some other small tetra i could have?
the tank has practically no decor, it's just water, heater and so many plants you can barely see the fish. um this is bad but i dont have a filter in there...my spare air pump died a few weeks ago and my internal power filter is unsafe (electrocuted a cory, not to mention me, last time i tried to use it in that tank.) so i guess no filter probably means no more fish right? but i still thought i'd ask. haha can you tell i'm kind of addicted to this hobby?
I'm assuming you mean live plants? If so, you don't necessarily need a filter... Temperature is fine too, just don't let it go above 82 F. My Tetras don't like anything over 80.
