    Anyone know where I can get the best list of tank mates suitable for white skirt tetras? I have 7 glofish tetras in a 38 gallon tank and I REALLY need to get them some company. I can't seem to get a list beyond basics like danios ugh.

    People over hype how aggressive betas are, in my opinion

    As long as it is around the same size as the tetras it should be fine

    Skirt tetras are pretty versatile, beyond whats been said you could have gouramis, bolivian rams, platys, just about anything that is temp compatible will work with them. As for a betta, it may or may not work, i just suggest having a backup plan incase things don't go so well.

    I guaranty a Betta can live with the tetras, they swim fast and don’t have long fins

    Personally in a community tank I would try to stay with a short finned betta. Plakat male or female. The only fish I would stay away from with skirt tetras are fish with really long fins or big enough to eat them. Temp wise they have a big range. For a combination that will school with your current glo tetras you can get black skirts and white skirt tetras to have a mix of different morphs of the same fish.

    I actually have 2 in the tank that have longer fins that the other ones do. Does that matter? Was also debating some guppies for the top?

    I know the feeling. I ended up getting swordtails today for my tank.
