Widow tetra will not look good in the long run. You can try a school of pink danios. These are very hardy fishes. You can also go through aqadvisor.com to find out compatibility, stocking capacity of your livestocks.

ok sbhadeep da, thanks a lot. I really do not like those tetra very much. but problem is my shopkeeper is renovating the shop making it much bigger. So for now he dont have many fishes. he told me to wait another 20 days to have wide range of fish to choose form. But I really want to put atleast some fish to my tank. :(

Discuss is a very good fish, but not for starters. You can try a single fighter and wait for 20 days. Otherwise, ask him what are the other fishes presently at his possession.

yeah, I think I should wait. There are other shops in my city but I dont trust them as they ask me a lot money for the tank. Any way, thanks a lot. If i get the list then I'l surely come back here for suggestion.

got my 1st fish... excited... There are 8 black tetra, 2 widow tetra, 2 rosy barb in my tank now... I ask him for some more rosy barb, but he said that he will give me tomorrow. 2 rosy barb are hiding, I guess as they are only two, they dont feeling safe. The shop keeper also promised me that he will exchange these fishes when his shop completed and then he will give what I want to keep...
