Don't worry, Kate. Diamonds are robust species and hard as nails.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Thanks Blue. Did a bit of reading on them today, and my water conditions are ideal. I'll have a look for some. :D

That's an idea. Is it ok to keep a selection of different plecos in the same tank without them fighting? :)

Should be ok in my opinion as long as space permits.:) Males will occasionally fight but otherwise should be fine if enough territories are provided.
I know some people keeping different species of plecs with no problems at all.
Good luck, Kate.:)

Well, about a month later and I finally made a decision

I went to the LFS today and got myself 8 black phantom tetras. Lovely fish, very peacful and they are shoaling well together. No probs settling in.

I'll post some pics when I get a chance, although they don't sit still for two minutes, so I'll be lucky to get a good pic!

You were tempted by somebody to get the black phantoms, Kate. Tempted.
How come only a few got Kerri tetras when I want to demand from them more pics of Kerri Tetras for the gallery.
