The catfish species listed here are some of the most popular among hobbyists. These catfish usually are purchased to perform some sort of function in terms of fish tank maintenance. For example, these fishes are known for their scavenging abilities but they too need their own foods just like the rest of the fish in your tank.Tetras do will well in tanks as small as five gallons to the largest tanks imaginable. Twenty and thirty gallon tanks tend to be the most popular among hobbyists. They aren't overly large, making them more manageable, and they still allow for many different species of fish. The larger the tank the more fish you can have. Personally, I like how tetras school in a tank. I think it adds something to my systems and makes them seem more natural. A group of six individuals makes a nice school, but if your tank allows for more fish I would have more. Whatever size tank you choose just make sure that it as adequate filtration and that you clean and change your filters as needed.I mentioned before that neon tetras tend to be quite popular. One reason is they are tiny. Often people equate a small fish with a small tank, and for the most part this is true. Many times parents will get their child a small starter tank kit from their local pet store and stock it up with these tiny fish. And why not? They are brightly colored, small, and tend to school together. It's a great way for young children to learn about fish keeping. However, if you think about it do you really think that fifteen neon tetras will fit in a five gallon tank? You'd be surprised how often people try to add too many of these little fish to their systems. That being said I have no problem with neon tetras in a five gallon tank, just in a smaller school. Tretas tend to be schooling fish and often do well with other kinds of tetras. Mollies, guppies, cory cats, plecos, and danios are all popular tank mates for tetras. Smaller tetras, around one inch or less fully grown, tend to be more timid and get along better with smaller fish that are closer to their size. These little fish get along great with the above listed fishes as well as loaches, cherry barbs, and rasboras. Larger tetras tend to do well will all of the above listed species as well as: 'sharks' (balas and rainbows), gouramis and betas, swordtails, and some of the more docile species of angelfish.
