what to do with one lone Buenos Aires Tetra
So, the fish tank I got from a friend who is moving, as one 10year old Buenos Aires tetra in it. It's been by itself with other misc tetras for many, many years. I figure at 10 years old, how much longer could it live? I would buy it more Buenos Aires Tetras, but I really don't want this type of fish, and when he/she dies I'm stuck with four our five more. Thoughts about what to do? Let it live out it's years alone? Donate it to a fish store? Buy a few more?
Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard
This is a case where I would not add more of the species. Better to let the single fish live out its life as it is. I sometimes have a fish species that over time die off, leaving two and then one alone; if I don't want that species any longer I just let it be.

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]
