blind cave tetra
ive recently finished cycling a 35g tank and have so far put in a pictus catfish, an upside down catfish, 3 mollies and a swordtail. a pitbull plec shall soon be joining them but i was going to put another couple of fish in soon as i think i have room for another 2 or 3 as long as theyre not too big (though correct me if im wrong please). using the 1"/gallon rule i am using 24" when they fully grow. just now at the size they are i am only using 13". i really like the look of blind cave tetras as i prefer obscure looking fish rather than just pretty fish. i have done a bit research and have found that they like a range of temperatures and water harness/softness and are peaceful. my tank has 2 caves and reasonably well planted so there would be hiding spaces if they wanted them. my question was really whether they would be compatable with my tank. so far they seem to be but as they arent the most popular fish there isnt a great wealth of information. i found on a number of sites that a dimly lit tank shows them off best, but this doesnt mean that they will prefer a dim tank does it?
any help would be appreciated, and if not compatable, could anyone suggest other fish that would go well with my tank that are more unusual looking?
