I got 4 3 inch red bellies in a 55 gallon. I just added 3 bucktooth tetras (about 2.5 inches each). Will they live together? Also, how big do bucktooth tetras grow?

Bucktooth tetras (payara) live only to about a foot in the home aquaria. Althouth they will grow crazy fast in the wild.

Do a search on google or somewhere and you'll find some 2'+ payara.

The link doesn't work, but I think it was on thePACK's post the other day about bucktooth tetras (Exodon Paradoxus). however if you are looking for info on payara then I saw a thread on them also, just look for it, it was posted today.

Judazzz has almost every kind of tetra with his piranhas, and not just tetras, he has kribs, and barbs, and danios.
take a look on his website, he has loads of pics & very nice piranhas.

Well right now they're alright. The ps try to get them but the exedons are just too fast. They run circles around my red bellies. Its funny, and it keeps my ps in shape. Hope it stays that way. Also, I put a little crayfish in there, thinking it would get eaten, and they wont eat him!!!!
