You could put a pair of GBRs in the tank with them. I have cardinal tetras and GBRs together.

German Blue Ram im guessing

you just have to be aware if you add 2 Rams if they spawn they will be very territorial and probably terrorize your tetras

Check the photos in our profile, Blue Ram [click the shaded name] to see if this is what you mean.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

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