    I was wondering about putting a couple of angel fish and tetras in my ten gallon. I was looking for colorful tetras, i saw some bright yellow and pink one at my LfS but i dont know what they were, any info would help.

    I think that Angels actually get too large for a 10 gallon.

    Tetras are def. a good candidate though...if I were you I'd try possibly a mix of tetras and threadfin rainbows or furcatta rainbows...

    Does anyone know what kinda of tetras the bright pink and yellows were. I tried to find them on the internet but couldn't. Also what kind of catfish would be good?

    I like Corydoras. They did a good job for me.

    Don't you need live plants for the corydoras.
