That is pretty cool to watch and thanks for the info guys. I think I'm either gonna go with live bearers or black skirted tetras. But I was thinking about a fish I used to loveee when I had it in my 55 gallon, but I have doubts because of it's fins, though I don't think the firemouth would actually take a chunk out of it. But what about an AFB? I know I'd probably have to go with the tetras if I got one do to their preditory nature but I used to have one in my 55 gallon and I love oddities like them. I have my doubts on whether it would work but I wanted to run it by guys more knowledgable then I just in case it would.

That should work. They are beautiful tetra, and will spawn regularly.

In case you're not aware, we have fish profiles here, under the second tab from the left in the blue bar. Most commonly-available fish are included, with info on needs, compatibility, etc. Just so you know.
