can someone help on what kind of tetra is best for a ph of 7.6 and a temperature of 75 degrees or slightly higher.

Don’t worry about your PH unless they’re wild caught, which they probably weren’t. Mid 70’s will work for pretty much any Tetra honestly lol.

Well okay thank you because I was looking at someone and Idk if cardinals and embers will work With a temperature and ph range like that.

I may be a tad bit biased but black skirt tetras are super cool! Not everyone's cup of tea but they are active and very Hardy. I love watching them school around and chase each other. They go berserk when it's feeding time which makes me love them even more. Hopefully your tank will be big enough to get a proper school of tetras (regardless which one you choose) they are peaceful with my sunset honey gourami and get along great!

Well it’s a family tank and my parents want colorful nice looking fish. Like what I mentioned.

The thing about aquarium bred fish, with some exceptions, is that they’re able to adapt to different PH levels. Cardinals and embers will do totally fine in the mid 70s.

Sorry about that, didn't see the colorful part you mentioned. AquaticJ is correct. Plenty of other tetras out there with lots of color

Cardinal or rummynose tetras would be nice.

It really depends on your tank size other inhabitants.

good suggestion! The species Gymnocorymbus ternetzI comes in many different colors other than the black too, like the white variation I own, and not to mention the popular “GloTetras” that glow in the dark lol!

Well just other people on a different form. It was a while back, long time ago I asked if I can add cardinals in this tank and they said its to cold for those tetras and they like acidic waters more.

If it’s mid to upper 70s it’s absolutely not too cold, nor does a near neutral PH prevent you from having them.

I just got 7 embers in a 10 gallon and they are in water at 77 but they would be fine at 75 and are super active and fun to watch
