rummy nosed tetra ? they shoal together.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

i have thought about them but for some reason all the pet shops that stock them over here never have more than two in at a time,. and they never look healthy.
I dont want to go and add unhealthy fish into my tank incase they infect all of the other ones!

cherry barbs look nice and are ment to be peacfull,i've not kept these befor
i kept tigers,and odessa barbs.
the cherry barbs should be kept in a large group.
