So I have a school of 10 embers tetras in with my male Betta fish in a 10 gallon. They are super active and all over the tank. The Betta seems to be doing what he normally does, sleeping at the bottom or top of the tank and swimming the tank slowly. Iíve noticed the ember tetras chase each other a little. I thought they were a very peaceful and non nippy group of tetras? Is this territorial or do they play? Iím hoping they wonít get territorial with my Betta, or will they only do it within themselves?
Yeah, I've kept emperor tetras twice. They are a lot like tiger barbs. There's a pecking order and the top dog (usually a male) will harass the others. Apparently, they shouldn't go after other fish unless the school is smaller (below 6?).
They’re the peaceful fire red/orange ember tetras. It’s been a little over a week and they’re doing fine with my Betta. I don’t see them chase each other as often anymore, they just have figured out their order.
