    Hi All,

    What type of tetras can happily live together? I am thinking of 4-5 schools of about 8 fish each in a 100L aquarium.

    In that size, you can probably do a max of 2 schools, maybe 3, I'll let some others chime in. Cardinals, neons, rummy nose, zebras are all good choices I think. I think most tetras can live happily together.

    Zebras aren't tetras...

    Oops, you're right, I was thinking of danios. It's been a long day :)

    EDIT: I completely blanked. I had been thinking of black neon tetras, sorry. :confused:

    It's ok, you're forgiven this time :)

    I would do 2 schools with more in each school in that size tank. It will look better.

    As far as what types...black skirts, cardinal, neon (all varieties), glowlight, rummys, diamonds. Most tetras will do fine together, some are a little nippier than others. Congos I'd say are too big as they need more swimming room

    Agreed, every other tetra in the Characins group works besides Congos.

    10 and 10 of Cardinals and Rummys for that size would look pretty cool, IMO :)

    I like the idea of the rummy and cardinal tetras so I think I will go with that,
    Thanks all for your help

    I have neon tetras, glowlight tetras, both regular color and the albino color and ember tetras. they all get along fine and are very peaceful. Alison
