    Neil, thanks for "butt"ing in there, those posts were rubbing me the wrong way, but I didn't want to say anything. You did it really well. You were polite, nice, but still were able to say something~

    eh, give them a few more weeks to see if they'll calm down when you approach.

    They dont freak out like crazy, they just spaz, occasionally hitting the gravel. They'll calm down and swim everywhere normally. Just wondering if this is because of their size or prey fish thing. They eat every thing normally and stuff.

    Don't don't try to. I try to be cautious not to bump the tank/table. Or make any sudden movements. My betta couldn't care less though, in fact, he swims up to me. And when I do a water change; tetras freak, betta moves in.

    yeah, it's bright enough for the moss. As for swimming away, could your movements be startling them? My harlequins do that to some degree, but for the most part they ignore me.

    Yay! I'm not a nuisance anyway... So it's bright enough for the moss? And the tetras keep swimming away anytime I walk near them, if I stay still, they return to normal. Is this just a natural reflex, or are they still adjusting after 1.5 weeks? Thx!

    Well, the way you have to think of this is in wpg (watts per gallon). Right now, with 10 watts per 10 gallons, you are at 1 wpg, which is not enough for bright light plants. You could try, I'm not sure how it'd work out with the anachris since I'm not the smartest person in terms of plants, but be prepared in case it dies. And don't worry, I'm not annoyed XD
