    Yo, I got a rant about Emperor Tetras. I'm putting it here to explain my one survivor and to remind myself to never get more.

    3 males, 4 females (Aug 2019-now)

    The females were pale, listless, and ripped up because they were chased constantly. The two non-dominant males hid, while the top dog took over half the tank and chased ALL tetras (emp, neon, cardinal) into the other half (not the corys tho).

    Desperate, I put the underdog male and a female in a 20g tank to give them some relief. He harassed her.

    IMO, 35g isn't big enough for 7 fish. Maybe more plants and hiding holes would have helped, but HE found everyone eventually.

    One ph disaster later, I only have one female emp left. Despite everything, she actually seems relieved. She hangs out with the other tetras when she feels like it these days.

    From now on, I'm banning emps along with tiger barbs. They stress me out by being stressed out.
