It's hard to say to be honest. Even "non-aggressive", "community" fish can still display aggression problems. Just like with my tetras... I did get two fish to replace them though. A Red Neon Dwarf Gourami (which is pretty shy) and a Rosy Tetra, which seems to get along with the White Skirts (unlike the Black Skirts), despite being a relative.

If you want a really safe bet, try Neon Tetras. They're known as some of the most peaceful fish there is, they're small so you could have quite a few in your tank, and they're really pretty. Just bear in mind that they're not very hardy (or so I've heard), and you'll probably want to be sure your tank is well-established and fully-cycled before you risk it.

Personally, I kept mine... I would start working now on finding a home for him now, but enjoy the time while it lasts. You can probably keep it for another month or two before he outgrows your tank.

Now Homedog, you couldn't possible be suffering from the dreaded multiple tank syndrome could you?

Take it from someone who started with a ten-gallon, there are plenty of options for that size tank. Everyone will tell you you need to school certain fish, though, so if you're going to do full schools...yeah, that's kinda rough. But you could still do four glass cats, or a few tetras (I recommend neons, small and very peacable), or a hillstream loach if you have a cooler tank.

Green neons are even smaller than regular neons
