    Hi im new to fishlore so i just want to see how smart you guys really are when it comes to fish. Ok i recently bought a 15 gallon (60L) tank and it has a decent amount of plants in it but we still need to get the water tested. So im just wondering how many tetras i can get when i get four different types ?? like serpae,neon,glowlight and blackskirt.
    :;thx

    Welcome to FishLore!
    Since tetras are schooling fish the bigger the school the better. They can also be a bit nippy and the bigger the school the less nippy with other fish.
    That said I personally would cut down to two or three types and get AT LEAST four or five of each.
    Another thing that needs to be considered is the adult size of the tetras you choose. some of them can get quite large. My Blackskirts are two inches . Good Luck and keep us posted :)

    Welcome to Fish Lore Fitzy The Fish. I see by reading your aquarium information that you are not aware of the Nitrogen Cycle which is crucial to fish keeping. Here is link that explains it all. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask:The Aquarium Nitrogen Cycle

    Fitzy, I also think you should get an API Master Test Kit.
