Loreto tetras

Hey all. So I was at my lfs and they had these fish. I am not finding much information online about them. I think the only site that had something was seriously fish. Has anyone had these guys? I know just about all the tetras,danios,rasboras,etc need at least 15 gallons...but I am trying to find something that can go in my 14 with my false julii corys. They need a dither fish of some sort,they are quite shy since I moved the danios out. If I can get away with 5-6 of some tetra for them thatd be great. I was suggested hatchetfish,I will look them up next.

3 gallon male betta
10 gallon male betta
12 gallon QT
30 gallon
1 Pl*co, Brochis Splenden,False Julii Cory,Pygmy Corys,Female Betta,Harlequin Rasbora,Tetras
55 gallon Possible Barb tank?!

I've had this fish, a bit quieter than some of the tetras. Quite delicate and sensitive to water parameters and quality; most fish in the trade are wild caught. I personally would not have a group of these (need to be in a shoal of course) in a tank less than 24 inches length.

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

I have my "haunts" but you won't find me poking into things like marine or (very rarely) disease. I only comment from personal practical experience or research, in the hopes that my mistakes and limited knowledge may help others avoid my pitfalls.

Take care,
