Not to be a nag, but what is the temperature actually reading out as? Also did the pet store use test strips or did they pour your water into little vials and add drops of a colored chemical to the vials? If they used test strips then chances are... they have no idea if your water is good or not. And depending on the morals of the people working at the pet store, they could have said anything they had to in order to get you to just buy some fish. Your best bet is to and do it yourself if you really want to know what's going on in your tank. If we know the levels of Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate, and the Ph of your tank, plus an actual reading of your temperature, then we will be able to help you out so much better then with only vague information. Otherwise we will only be guessing and that might not get the help your fish need to them quick enough.Gabby said:
hi gabby, welcome to fishlore, actually tetras r schooling fish; u have to keep at least 6 of them in a tank. how many do u have? what is your tank size? do u have any bigger fish in that tank?Gabby said:My waters all fine, they checked it at the shop when i went in. The temperature is fine and everything. They ate a bit when it was in little bits, but a couple of them are really feint red, which i know isn't good. They're not acting funny, I'm just not sure what to do?!?!
I feed my tetras the same thing and they love them, not to mention they are good for them too. Make sure the water is good quality and the temps are good, and they will eat, may take time.tb19 said:This is what i feed my tetras and barbs. You should let them adapt to the tank. My tiger barbs took awhile...about 4 days for them to actually eat something. Amquel reduces ammonia, nitrates, etc. and Novaqua conditions the water and reduces stress on fish. Prime pretty much does the same.
