I got my Ember Tetras!

I went today and I got 9 Ember Tetras, 2 Otos to go with the one I had and 5 ghost shrimp. The Otos are in the 20 gallon with my 4 female bettas and 2 Bolivan Rams. The Ember Tetras and Ghost Shrimp are in my 10 gallon. Here are some pictures of the little bitty ember tetras and let me tell you I am already a huge fan of these friendly little guys! They are not at all shy and already come to the front of the tank when I get close to it. I think they will get the ember color when they get a little more settled in and maybe a little bit bigger. Anyway here are some pictures and videos of the shrimp and the embers. They are really fast so its kind of hard to take pictures of them. LOL

Thank you. They are doing great they have really colored up nicely and when I feed them they get excited and look like they get even more color. They are smaller than the ghost shrimp so no they do not pick on them.

Amanda

They're nice. Have you got some newer photos showing them after they've coloured back up?

That's looking very good Amanda (I watched the video), nice work. Byron.

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]

I like your pictures and your tanks. I never heard of Ember Tetra's. They are really cute. I bought some Von Rio Congo tetras at Petco awhile back and they were not so colorful when I first put them in my tank.Once they settled down they colored up really nice.
