    Hello everyone,

    I have a 20G tank with one female Apistogramma Borelli "Opal" and fry (2 weeks old) removed Male. Would it be okay to put 6 bloodfin tetras in as dither fish? Or will my fry become lunch? I was also wondering if I could re-introduce the father Apistogramma back to my display tank with his fry. Just hate seeing him in the holding tank.
    Thank you!

    The fry will become lunch :(
    Every time I've kept any tetras with any of my fry, they hunt them down and eat them. I've never kept any bloodfins with fry and it work out. I'm no apistogramma expert, so I can't tell you if you can put the dad back in. Maybe if you put a barrier and close off a section for him? Only 7 or so gallons though?
