"I have 3 of these fish (all the store had) along with some ember tetras, white cloud minnows, ghost shrimp and a betta. The beauty of cardinal tetras cannot be overstated when provided with an optimal environment.I recently picked up fish keeping again after a hiatus due to divorce, and went our of my way to get cardinals. All of the tetras get along so far and more or less swim together, along with the white clouds,and they are definitely the star of the school. I have a few tall and medium live plants ranging from swords to wisteria and more and they really seem quite content. I've only had them a few months but they have been fairly easy for me to keep happy. I take great care to measure my tank chemistry every other day and do 20% water changes roughly once a week, and all decor other than live plants is cleaned once every 2 to 3 weeks. I feed a mix of bloodworms, micropellets and an enriched flaked food (as well as a couple of sinking pellets for shrimps.) My bettas pretty much ignores the others. I've kept bettas males and bettas sorority tanks before and was thinking of adding two more female bettas (the one in the tank is female.) But I digress... Cardinals,highly recommend for adding distinct beauty to your tank. Would definitely make sure you have plenty of plants and rock formation decor for them. In my opinion, easier to keep than this article suggests, but I've been keeping fish a long while so maybe it's just second nature now. :)"
