some stranglers left.
so ive had these fish for a couple yrs now. im not sure how old they are. i got them from a buddy of mine. so over the last two yrs ive lost 6 of the 7 blood fin tetras to some weird disease i think. they had bent spines. so there is one left of this little guy. also i have one black skirt tetra left out of the 4. should i get them new buddies to hangout with or wait for them to pass? i cant decide which would be a better option.

hey i think you should try to keep your tsnk alive, get some more fish change the tank layout make your tank something you are highly interested in and have fun with it man. I think its always a good idea to add some more fish but if you are really tired of these fish give them away and go with some different species just keep at it my friend.

yeah i do really like my tank. its the oldest an is finally getting thick with plants. i never thought to give the couple away an get some new stuff. it already has 2 angels, albino bristle nose pleco and a school of buenos aires tetras. im not sure if adding more of the black skirt an blood fin is a good idea. i think youre on to something with getting more fish an give the blood fin and black skirt tetra away.
