Averus Posted June 13, 2021 Share Posted June 13, 2021 I was able yesterday to get the first batch of fish my my newly cycled 55 gallon tank, and decided to get some Black Neon Tetras. The guy at the store was extra nice and gave me a few extra free to boot. The fish have adapted fine to the tank, everyone is eating and swimming around okay, and no changes in the water parameters, but I noticed something strange with three of the fish I got. They do not congregate with the rest of the Black Neons, and they look a little different. I was assuming they were juveniles because they are so small and they do not have the color of the adults. The trio of them are sticking together and really love to hang out by the plants. They are eating okay and are very spunky, so they don't look sick. I am suspecting they are young Emperor Tetras that I got by accident. I am not going to complain if so, but I am concerned that only three is not enough for them to be happy in the tank. How long can I wait till I can grab a few more to make them happy? I really want to clamp down on aggression issues, which now I may have. 😞 I took a couple pictures, but admittedly it was hard to get them with them zipping around so much.
