Old tank 10g, new start
I have had a ten gallon tank for 7 years now, with the same filter and heater. I have kept everything in this tank from turtles to anglefish. It is now being used for: 2 cherry barbs and 2 red band tetras. the 2 tetras were the first fish i got about 7 years ago.
i want to get some new fish and i would love some new ideas i am seriously considering breeding guppies but i am up for other types of fish. I have 2 other tanks, a 40g which i am using for breeding native chubs and bass. The other is an old 12g nano cube which has nothing in it. so i have some more possibilities.
Any help would be great thanks!!!
I'm not familiar with the common name "red band tetra" but I'm going to assume that like most tetras, it prefers to be in a group of at least six to thrive. The cherry barbs also do best in a group of two to three females to each male. Sexing them should be very easy in a clean, healthy dealer tank: the males should be bright red and the females a coppery color. This sex ratio will cause your male to color up very nicely and will reduce the amount of stress he places on the females. I believe three to four cherry barbs and a school of tetras would be a well-stocked 10g.
