It has been a while so I thought I'd give an update since my last post in July when I killed most of my Cardinal Tetras with a water change. I added another school of 22 cardinals and school of 7 velvet swordtails. The angelfish have not shown any aggression towards the tetras or adult swordtails but the little swordtail fry do get fed upon which I suspected. The angelfish are about 8 months old and I find it interesting to watch the change in behavior. They have transitioned from a tight school of 6 to segregated groups. The 3 marbles hang out on the left side of thr 75 gallon tank and the veil tail zebra and silver ghost hang out on the left. The solid black/panoy parabia one gets left out of either group and has staked out the middle of the aquarium. Their aggression towards each other is mainly charges and posturing and they still come together at feeding time.

Default Re: My Angelfish Experiment

Thanks for the update, as I have been curious about this thread with your experience that resulted in some kill off. I really like cardinal tetras; they add a LOT of color to a setup. I've gone back and forth with the idea of having them in my new setup, but worry that IF my eventual Apistos breed they will pick off the fry one by one.
