Yea I'm workin on the relocating.

I'm going to stick with the gravel and once I'm moved will get another tank probably a 15 gal.

Probably will stick with Tetras and similar sized fish in the future.

Thanks!!!!

Here are some fun smaller fish for you to look up
Harlequin Rasbora
Glowlight Tetra
Rummynose Tetra
White Skirt and Black skirt Tetras (same species different color)
Serpae Tetra (high fin is my favorite)
Pygmy Corydoras (need sand though)
Dwarf Corydoras (need sand though)
Rasbora sarawakensis
Red Tailed Rasbora
Bloodfin Tetra
Dwarf Pencilfish
and then there is these popular little guys that are seen in many planted tanks:

That's great. They are great fish just not right for your tank.

Good suggestions above. We can help you choose some fish once you rehome the others.

Found a home for both fish tonight. Came home and the wife put 2 electric green Tetras in the tank and bought a 15 gal upright tank and was already setting it up.

So I guess once its all cycled and we (she) figures the aqua scape we will get some more.

Lol fish are amazing to watch and teach you a good amount of responsibility.

Growing up it was cats, dogs, & cattle. Only had 1 goldfish when I was 6 yrs old.

Again thank y'all for the help. Any advice for tank setup for the fish? I.e. buildings, plants?

I would put the tetras in the 15g. It's a bit small for them but it will do. You will need to do a fish in cycle which is this article.

Daily water changes and testing. Do you have a test kit yet? I recommend the API master test kit. Liquid tests NOT strips.

Ok being we have these 2 Tetras what others would you suggest. The guy at the LFS said I could have up to 12 of these in the new tank.
I'll have to play with the calculator that was shared with me.

If we decide to stick with this species what would be an ideal habitat? I read up that the Black Tetras like tall plants. What's your take on real or fake plants? The guy in the store danced around the topic and didn't answer all of my questions.
Probably tired of seeing me......

I prefer real plants. What plants you can keep depends on your lighting. What kind of light and bulb do you have?
