    Would five of these guys have enough room to be happy?

    Maybe you guys and gals in the US know them as Willay tetras. Anyway, they are Hyphessobrycon amandae, just to make sure of the ID.

    Cheers, Dave.

    I've never kept them, but since they are peaceful and grow to about an inch in length, five (or a few more) would do very well in a 6 gallon tank.

    They are a pretty fish but hard to find.

    Thanks for the reply Aquabill.

    I have found a shop that has some and they looked perfect for my new 6G. I just hope they still have some when the tank is ready for them.

    About five is what I had in mind.

    Dave.

    I am also looking at getting Ember tetras for my 6 gallon. They are one of the smallest tetra, a maximum length of 2cm and should be good in a shoal of 5. They are also a good fish to breed, which I might have in mind.
