    is that in your 55 gallon?

    Personally I would do the tetras. They are expensive though, $8.99 and you'll need at least 5.

    I think you could add 7 glofish and call it good

    I added 5 neon Tetra... Am I fully stocked?

    55 gallon
  7. CichlidnutFishlore VIPMember

    I would say yes. You're neons may become lunch for the Angel and the Shark at some point.

    If they do perhaps become lunch would a larger Tetra be safe maybe silver tip?

    I really liked scissor tail tetras in with my angels. They didn't bother anyone and they were the best schoolers ever.

    Scissortails are great have 6 in my 55 and love how tight they school and They get a good size

  12. CichlidnutFishlore VIPMember

    I take it it wasn't well received? :)

    Hold it... No list of choices I had been debating glofish and asked if I should get danios or Tetra...

    Danios are $9.99 each...

    Tetra are $14.99 each ...

    The neon Tetra were $1.99... Sorry for.editing original post I just updated the stocking list...

    Am I fully stocked...
  15. CichlidnutFishlore VIPMember

    Darn, you're prices are sky high! Glofish danios are $6.99 here and the Glotetra's are $8.99
    If the Neon's don't work, you might try Cardinals. pretty much the same thing but bigger.

    Wow what kind of danios and tetras are you talking about?! Danios here are from 99cents up to about $3! At those prices it'd be cheaper for you to buy fish online and pay shipping!
  17. CichlidnutFishlore VIPMember

    He's talking about glofish.

    Glotetras are even more expensive than glofish. The tetras are 8.99 here too.

    Okay so should I leave the neons at 5 or is 10 safe?

    My red tail shark and Angelfish are very young so they shouldn't bother the neons...

    But if I decide to get cardinals because the neons disappear could I get 10 even though they are slightly larger?

    I think you could get away with cardinals if you wanted.
