Bleeding Hearts and Black Phantoms

My wife bought five Black Phantom Tetras the other day and when I got home I realized there was a Bleeding Heart Tetra in there by mistake (so only four Phantoms). They seem to be getting along, but should I get a few more Bleeding Hearts to make the lonely one feel more secure (he/she seems to be a bit timid) or will the five just not realize the difference? I have the capacity, so a few more fish is not a problem.

Welcome to the forum Yellamo. Yes, if you have the room add more bleeding hearts. It's what I would do.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

it kinda depends on the size of the tank and the temperment of the fishies that you already have
