If I had a ten gallon tank with 5-6 pristella tetras as starter fish and was wondering what would be good tankmates? I was thinking possible tankmates might include a combo of...
1 bristlenose pleco- 10g is too small
1 dwarf gourami -10g is to small
1 honey gourami - 10g is to small
5 kuhli loaches - maybe, I would still encourage a 20g for these guys as they are very playful.
2-3 guppies - possibly. They do require different water parameters from pristella, If your PH is in the low 7's it could work though. Get all male guppies though.
1 betta - wouldn't recommend it. Betta's are better by themselves usually. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
1 kribensis - honestly not certain off the top of my head.
any # of celestial pearl danios - doable from what I recall
1 panda garra - .. I'm drawing a blank right now.. now I gotta go research them again lol.
4-6 white cloud mountain minnows - I think pristella's require warmer water then what these guys can tolerate long term.
6 threadfin rainbowfish - rainbowfish are quite active and prefer larger groups. 10g is too small to home these guys properly.
1 apple snail - these guys can grow larger then most people realize. In addition if you have a PH below 7 it will erode the shell. Possible I suppose though.
2-3 bamboo shrimp - no idea honestly
2-3 african dwarf frogs - I would probably get more then 3, 5 I'm thinking. You will likely have to spot feed them some high protein foods like bloodworms or whatnot at least once a week in addition to making sure they are getting other food throughout the week.
Thanks for your advice guys.
