I've been debating for awhile on which to get to add to my current shoal of 8 reds and 1 piraya. They all get along great and i really want to keep it that way. I love how ternetzi's look, and also ive heard they shoal great, but then again if by adding a caribe the total shoal will be more aggressive thats also a plus. Hell maybe ill just get both...

nah id be pushing it i only got a 125. (planning on getting rid of some of the reds overtime) once they get larger in size. Also i enjoy an overstocked tank, used to have 8 of the reds in a 55, and they were fine.

WHy get a ternetzi, its basically a better colored red, why not get a caribe which are known to be more aggressive. You will be at least guaranteed something on aggressiveness

I love caribes, maybe I'm biased but they are great fish. Or you can get rid of a few reds and get both a ternetzi and caribe. The would be nice.

I'd get the ternetzi, but really both would be better.

I would get the caribe, cause a ternetzi is really just another red. I would like to have a variety (species) of fish in my tank over a variety of color.

I dont think Ternetzi act very much like reds, I think they act more like Cariba do without the territorial problem. You can get 3 Cariba for what you can get one Ternetzi though

I agree.. I dont think you'll get a ternetzi that will cause havok in your tank by killing your other fish but I do think a cariba could do that.

get both. TERNETZI ARE NOT THE SAME AS REDS. i have never seen a 15"+ red. however i have seen a ternetzi that big. he was very thick and looked like a bulldog. i dont care what everyone says ternetzis are different than reds.
wes
Different how? Curious about this 15" tern, I hear talk about these monsters but nobody bothers to show us them. ???

Tough call on the fish though, both look and act fantastic in the tank. Yellow might be a nice color change though the humeral spot is equally nice.

I would defintely go with the ternetzi. It would add more color to your tank. Not to mention it probably get along better with your reds than the caribe.
