Should you separate pregnant tetras fish from other fish before thay lay eggs?
Tetras don't get pregnant. All female tetras scatter their eggs and the eggs are fertilised by the male(s) after they are scattered. Any eggs both fertilised and unfertilised will inevitably be eaten by most fish in the aquarium including the potential parents.
If you wish to breed Tetras of any kind successfully, you will need to set up a special tank for them and provide all the water and habitat conditions they require to encourage them to spawn. Then, after they have finished spawning, the adult fish need to be removed otherwise they will eat the eggs.
How do you know if your neon tetra is pregnant and how can you help the babies to survive you have other fishes in your tank?
Neon Tetras lay eggs. The female's belly should be obviously larger than the male's and should spawn in a few days. Some tetras also can get diseases that might make them look larger. What I do with my pregnant female guppies is I put them in a plastic container with holes poked in the sides (so water can be exchanged but fish including fry can't swim in or out) and clip it to the side…
If you are going to house these species in the same tank (which I do not recommend) it is best to put these species in at the same time. Tetras can be territorial and it is not wise to add in other small fish after the tetras have established territory. This can lead to aggression. Keep in mind that tetras are "fin-nippers" and they will try to bite the tails of their tank mates with…
Cardinal Tetras are from the very tropical, acid waters of the Amazonian Rainforest. Almost any small fish species that comes either from the same area or places that have similar water conditions should be OK with them. The species that come to mind are most Tetras, Danios, Barbs, Rasboras, Corydoras, and most of the Dwarf Amazonian Cichlids like Rams etc.
Should you get an African dwarf frog end of question you have 2 angles 6 serpe tetras 2 guppies and an algae eater?
You can put at least 5 neon tetras with Betta's because neon tetras need to be in a school. If you only put 1-3 neon tetras, then they will probably be eaten by the Betta because you won't have enough neon tetras to be in a school. The purpose for a school is to protect themselves from predators with a group and if you only have 1-3 neon tetras, then they will hide and get…
Can a betta fish be put into the same fish tank as 7 neon tetras 2 black neon tetras 2 black skirted tetras 1 glo-light tetra 2 male guppies and 1 octicinclus catfish?
No, the Betta is an aggressive fish breed. It will fight anything that moves and breathes. It will shred up small fish with their tiny, sharp teeth. It is best to keep a Betta in a separate tank. You can only keep a Betta with other fish when the other fish are much larger than the Betta. Then the Betta will be intimidated and it won't dare touch the larger fish.
Yes, since Guppies and Neon Tetras are small fish (and stay small), there should be no problem with them living comfortably in a 2 gallon tank. You should add a little filter and air bubble combo to keep the water clean and aerated. Since these are tropical fish, you should also add a small heater and a thermometer. Goldfish do not need a heater but tropical fish do.
It is a dominance battle. Usually a fish that is in a tank before another fish considers the space it's territory and will chase other fish. It may be pregnant and is trying to clear the area for a safe nursery. Place more areas to hide. You can try and control dominance by adding aggressive species to the tank last or removing the aggressor for a time and adding it back.
