    Initially I couldn't find any espeis so went with rn---dear lord, they went after my betta within 24 hours of being in the tank. They went back to the store. I've heard many mixed stories regarding tetras and a betta. I wonder if some lemon tetras would bother any other fish in my tank. And, it seems that it's now pretty well stocked and I don't want to take the espeis back to the store. What do you think?

    The tetras might bother the Betta since it is slow moving and has large flowing fins. Without the Betta I would say get the tetras. I had 20+ each of Cardinals and RN in my 75 at one time with 10 each Lemon and Blue Tetras.

    That sounds like a very pretty combination. :) Geez, I love my betta so he's gotta stay. I'd take the corys and the espeis back before I'd get rid of my betta. There was a point where I was only going to have my betta and some snails. 8)
