ok, so what tetras are peaceful enough to be compatible with female Bettas? I know I had already "decided" on Cardinals, but I'm starting to rethink. The man at my lfs (who obviously actually knows how to keep fish!!) confirmed what I had sort of thought, that tetras only live a few years, not the huge MAX lifespans they give you on websites...so now I don't have the lifespan limit (I can only have fish that won't live too long since I will be going to college in several years). So...which tetras aren't going to tear up their fins?
