I have a rhom in my 55 and it looks really empty
Do you think putting a huge school of neon tetras in there would work?

Just get them as small as you can, and it might work. I've heard stories about people keeping small tetras with their rhoms, and I think the smaller you'll get them, the less interested your rhom will be in them....

I'd give it a shot: neons are dirt cheap anyways, and if they disappear, you're rhom had a nice gourmet meal

i think hareball on fish post just posted about this .he added loads of really small quick fish to his rhom tank and so far has only lost 2 .the rhom apparently does not seem interested in such small fish
try a few and see what happens

I doubt it will work, neons are bright and easy to see, many fish just cant resist them, but they are also cheap, so you could always try a few

Rhoms are generally solo acts. A school of tetras will be seen as little more than a buffet
I would agree with this statement

I bought about 20 or so zebra danios to put with my rhom. The thinking was that they might shoal causing the rhom to get confused and that they were too small for the rhom to bother with. Wrong on both counts. It ate half of them before i gave the danios to a friend. Have you seen how fast danois are, not fast enough.

NO man!!! A school of Tetras might gather into a shoal and attack your Rhom, taking out little nibbles and bits!!
J/K


You can try and try and try.. But the only thing that can be buddies in the same tank with my Rhom were always rocks!! Even plants didnt last with his ass.

And also, after a while could I switch my rhom into my 33? Or do you think it would get to big?
I have both my Rhoms in a 33.. Wont transfer him for another yr or so.
