I'm going to go with 18 and thin as needed.

How good are Thorichthys at fending off tetras? Would I be able to witness some of the parental behaviors for 2-3 weeks if I introduce a medium sized tetra?

I can't find any of the central American tetras, so I will have to substitute with a SA species.

I think Tetras are better at eating Thorichthys fry than Thorichthys at easting tetras. That should not stop you though, just be careful to remove some fry when wanted.

I have 20 Hasemania nana with my pasionis and it has worked great for 6 month so far.

I'll try some tetras.

I was worried that fry would be eaten as soon as they went free swimming.
