Hello.

I received a 86L/22G tank for Christmas, very much enjoying this new-found hobby. I cycled the tank for a month, and I've just introduced six small tetras a week ago, three white and three black:


(sorry the picture's not great)

I have a few simple questions. The temperate is 24C/78F, and they appear to be happy. Is this a good temperature to leave the tank at and does it leave the option open for many other species of fish?

Secondly, the two smallest black ones are hiding in plants all the time, persecuted by the slightly faster sand larger white ones. Is there a way to remedy this or is it inevitable?

Finally, can anyone identify the exact species? All I know is they are tetras, and I can't seem to pin the exact type down online.

Thank you in advance, I've found reading this forum very helpful.

Graham.

They look like Gymnocorymbus Ternetzi (black skirt tetra or black widow tetra) and the other looks to be the same except its an albino version.

As far as the fish hiding that a natural action of the fish. you ddin't say whatt type of fish they are but they are looking for protection.
