I am thinking of just bringing home today ~ 12 tetras and 12 danios. Should I get a scavenger with them?

I am not sure how often to feed them ~ every other day?

What kind of tetras? I think danios are boring fish. You should look for a bigger bodied tetra like Skirt Tetras, Buenos Aires Tetras, Sepre Tetra ect. And then go with 10-12 neons or cardinals. Just a suggestion

I would get glofish danios they are very nice and colorful!

Tetras prefer softer water, danios and livebearers like basic.

I would go with danios and platies...
A good resource is Tropical freshwater aquarium fish: Homepage

As for the bottom you can get some emerald catfish or some Bolivian rams, the catfish should be kept in groups of 5 or 6 while I wouldn't put more than 2 rams in the tank so they can have their own territories.

Look in our profiles for more information about both.

Thanks, everyone!

I just got back and the bags are floating! I have never paid $85 for a bunch of fish that didn't even fill a tea cup before. Here is what I got:

Neon Tetras 6

Rasboras

Rummy Nose ~ 15 ( that was expensive, but they are my fav!)

Red Swordtails.


I am so excited!

Awesome, as I see there are no danios on the list. No offense to all you danio lovers out there but IMHO they are boring looking along with being crazy hyper.
To me they ruin the zen of a community tank the minute they are added to the water. Forget about glo-fish, (genetically altered danios) because besides being just as crazy as their natural cousins,
they are man-made freaks of nature. There, I said it. :lol:

@ Kymmie LOL:rofl:

Oooohh...Dennisons would be nice! And you have the large tank they would need. Gorgeous, gorgeous fish. A bit pricey though but worth it and would look great with the Congos whom I also love.

What Rasbora did you get? Harlequins?

I agree, Rummys, Congos and Dennisons in a 125?? That tank would *POP* with color. Since this woman never batted an eye at the price of a discus I'm thinking she can handle the price of a Dennison, ya think?? ;-)
