Comments: IMO, Lemons are one of the more timid Tetras, and will usually shy away from any trouble among other fish in the tank. Also, they are not the hardiest in the Tetra family. I lost an entire school of them while moving them to another established tank in the house. While all of the other species lived through that transition, the Lemons did not.
