    For the tank size, see the Aquarium Setup section above. It not only has the tank size, but describes all the tank parameters!

    Size-wise and temperament-wise, these fish should be okay together. However, you are heavily stocking the tank, so issues may be overcrowding.

What can I say about rummy noses? what lovely fish they are and how nice they are to other fish and how they swim in shoals with their own and others. I used to have two but one died so he swims with my blood fin tetras and my neon tetras. I am going to get some more so he isn't on his own but he is fine at the moment. I do advise you to get these fish if you want a gorgeous tank.

I have 3 of these lovely black neon tetras and they are lovely and they are very placid fish. Mine eat quite well and they aren't shy, they don't come out all of the time most of the time they do. I am planning on getting some more so I recommend you get these fish in your tank.

I have 3 of these cardinal tetras and they are lovely fish and get on with everyone in my tank such as neon tetras, glow light tetras, lemon tetras, cherry barbs and zebra danios. I am planning on getting some more in my community tank because they show lovely colours and they bond with other fish and swim with them especially neon tetras. I would advise you to get these lovely fish in your tank.

We have 6 lemon tetras and they are gorgeous fish and they get on with my neon tetras, guppies and my cherry barbs and my lemon tetras are eating well and they all like to swim together. They are peaceful fish and I am planning to get some more because I love them so much. So I recommend you get these fish.

We have 7 neon tetras in one tank and 6 in another and they are lovely school fish and I love them very much. I am planning to get some more soon because they are lovely friendly fish. So I recommend you have these fish. We also have 6 glow light tetras,7 penguin tetras and these all get on well with the neon tetras also.

    He will only eat live foods, perhaps try mixing up the offerings... feeder fish one day, worms another.

I have a female silver dollar purchased September 1990. It is now 24 years old. The only documentation I have is family members who have seen it over the years. My wife and I are amazed that it is still alive and wonder how much longer it will live!

    Wow! That is awesome. They average 10 years or more, but you'll have to let us know what the 'or more' means, because you're breaking new ground:)

    The odd swimming angle is likely the result of a swim bladder malady. It could simply be bloat from over-feeding or feeding dry flake food absorbing water in the fishes stomach and expanding, or possibly constipation. But it could also be the result of another problem, see swim bladder disease here, on the  Fish Diseases and Treatments page (scroll down just a bit) and it gives you some things to consider.
