    How Many x-ray pristella tetras would I be able to put in a 30 gallon tank. I want to have a school that they are really comfortable in but I like to keep stocking pretty light. Thanks in advance

    minimum would be 6 pristellas. in a size aquarium that big, 10 or 12 would look very nice and still not be heavy.

    I have 8 Pristella in my 35 gallon, along with 8 cherry barbs and 7 Sterbai. I could add another 2 fish to each of those schools if i wanted, but keeping stock down for the time being

    Is there anything else in the tank?

    I’m not currently planning on putting anything else in there but the tank is currently cycling so nothing is set in stone

    Then I would even do 12-15, unless you wanted another schooling fish in your stocking.
