Neon, black neon or glowlight tetras?

Trying to choose between the 3 above..a small school of 5 or 6 to go in with my betta and mystery snail. Would love suggestions, pros and cons and why you chose whichever you chose.

I tried to put my signature but the ink wouldn't go through my screen.

First of all, how big is your tank? I have neon tetras in my 30 g soroity tank. I love neons because they are so pretty. You should get at least 6 because any fewer and they don't feel comfortable since they are shoaling fish.

OK, 6 should be OK as long as there is only 1 betta along with the mystery snail of course.

Yes that's all there will be plus running 2 HOB filters both for 20 gallon tanks so bioload is no problemo,

I would get cardinals instead of Neons, they are a bit brighter and look lovely in shoal

Yes but not much. I have a shoal of neons and cardinals together and there is hardly any difference apart from more colour on the cardinals

I haven't had much luck keeping cardinals alive. They require softer water than I have.
