I have several tetra species in my fish tank. Most of them stay around the bottom of the tank so I really want another tetra species that is more outgoing and swims around. Here's what I have:
65 gallon planted tank- High plants in background.Mid size on the sides and Low plants in foreground .
Plenty of open space in front of tank for swimming.Black substrate and background. Pretty Subdued lighting- Lighting is not an issue as I researched all of this when tank was set up 2 years ago.
Parameters are all stable. I clean the tank, filter and change water on a regular basis. Usually once a week or once every two weeks.
Okay, the fish I have are......
5 Panda tetra that are active in the upper level and play tag with each other
10 Cardinal Tetras which don't really swim around a lot - they stay on the bottom of the tank
8 Black Neon Tetras
8 Glowlight Tetras -same as Cardinals - stay on bottom around plants and don't swim around a lot.
2 Red Phantom Tetras (Had 5 but for some reason 3 died over time.Not very hardy for me for some reason and I don't want to replace them. The two are fine swimming together.
I want more color and more activity. Can anyone give me some suggestions?
