    Hi - I have 5 neon Tetras and 1 rummy nose Tetra in a ten gallon tank, and next week I am going to add more fish. The tanks bioload is at about 45%, here's some info about the tank:
    -78 F all the time
    -has lightning
    -established for about 5 weeks
    -vacuumed, scrubbed, and filter cartridge changed every 2-3 weeks
    Here is a list of fish I might be interested in getting, please say if you see any problems with these fish as Tankmates:
    -Cherry Barbs (small group)
    - Harlequin Rasboras (small group)
    -Corydoras Catfish (small group)
    Please reply if you know anything about these fish and compatibility with Tetras! :)

    Rummynose tetras need to be in groups but aren't suitable for a 10 gallon, neither are the others on your list imo.
    You could have a trio of sparkling gourami then you'd be stocked

    Acually I know that tetras need to be in groups and all my tetras school together. The rummynose has been schooling with the others from day one.

    So a small group of corydoras catfish wouldn't work? And are Rasboras mean? people have been telling me to get those.
