what fish could live with pristella tetras?
If I had a ten gallon tank with 5-6 pristella tetras as starter fish and was wondering what would be good tankmates? I was thinking possible tankmates might include a combo of...
1 bristlenose pleco
1 dwarf gourami
1 honey gourami
5 kuhli loaches
any # of celestial pearl danios
1 panda garra
4-6 white cloud mountain minnows
6 threadfin rainbowfish
1 apple snail
2-3 bamboo shrimp
2-3 african dwarf frogs
Thanks for your advice guys.:fish:
If the tank is not cycled, I would only start with 1 or 2 pristella tetras to begin with. Then you can slowly add more once the tank is cycled.
5-6 pristella tetras are going fill the tank to about 75% capacity. A lot of the fish you listed, I would not try in a 10 gallon.
The 2-3 guppies would work if they are all males. If you mix males and females, you will have 100 in no time. An apple snail would work.
I'm with spkehl, some of the listed fish are not compatible period, and some would be but in more space. Knowing your water parameters would help narrow this down.
