The tetras need a bigger tank, and a proper school. Either an upgrade or a rehoming would be best for the fish.

I totally agree. they won't be happy in that tiny of a tank and with only two. they should be in a 10g (maybe even 20g nut it's debatable) with at least 5 more of their own kind. you really can't appreciate tetras unless they are in proper schooling numbers anyway.

It's the perfect excuse for a new tank!!

I'm not sure if you'd need to cycle the tank for shrimp or if their bioload is too small. Wait for someone else to answer! Lol.

get a 20g long tank that would give you tons of options. it would be easy to plant, then you could school up your tetras and it would look gorgeous!

you could even just get a 10g. at least they would have room to swim around.

Keeping fish gets easier when you learn more. A word of advice:

Always take what the fish store says for a grain of salt until proven true. They are a business, and most of them aren't above killing fish to get a sale.

So, come ask us. We don't get any money out of you, we just want to help you and your fish be happy and relatively stress free.

Check Craigslist. You can sometimes get really good deals there. Or Walmart has ten gallons for about thirty bucks.
