Good setup for plants and tetra?
Hi. I been researching for a while for a 55 gallon tank to keep in my room. I really want a big and good fish tank to keep with some bright healthy plants and tetras. I came across the Marineland Freshwater Combo Kit 55 Gallon online for about $250(including shipping). Yet the 55 gallon from top fin cost about 100 dollar less!! I wonder which aquarium I should get. 100 dollar does not matter to me so much if the quality between the two tank is that wide. Therefore, I am hoping I can get some advice as to which aquarium is better.
Also, I plan on getting Neon, Lemon, Glo-light and Blue Tetra for my 55 gallon community tank. I read how Blue Tetra can be a bit nippy so I wonder if the four of these tetra can be kept together. While I do plan on having the tank fill with plants for the tetra, I also read that they prefer a slightly dimmed light. My question is, how am I suppose to have healthy plant that recieve good amount of light when the tetra hate the light?
