I have a few suggestions! :)

I have something similar to this, its a great size and only my tetras can fit:

My tetras also sometimes will hide in these types of things:

But my tetras all time favorite is small logs with fake plants on it. My neons pretty much own the plastic log in the tank lol all the fish no now to mess with it:

Tetras typically eat any type of tropical flake food. I feed mine : http://m.petsmart.com/mt/www.petsmar...AvailInUS%2FNo

They love it! Also as a treat I sometimes add a frozen blood worm for each of them, they devour those! :)

You can only see a few of them, but there's 8 in there. :) Bettasaurus chased them a little at first, but he leaves them alone now. :) Btw, he swims through that castle AND the "handrails" on that bridge.

Quick question: Would one have to add a few more water changes to one's routine with the additional fish?

@bettasaur: lovely tank and glad to hear everyone is getting along. I'm considering getting some tetras myself, after I add a couple more plants/hiding places to Dr. Z's tank.

Thanks! I think you probably would, since there's more waste being produced.
