Thanks for all of the help. :)
I have my tank all set up and they all seem to be getting along "swimmingly." :P
I have 4 peppered cory's, 5 neon tetras and my betta, Clark Kent.
I'll post pics when I get the chance.

Well the tetras are going back because they gouged out the eye of one of their school and killed him, and they're nipping my cories. Luckily my betta scares the daylights out of them, but they still need to go. Any suggestions on a replacement?

I believe rummynose's are, but VERY sensitive, even more so than the neons. They also may not show color for a couple weeks until they settle in. :)

About how are they with their aggression compared to the neons?

Probably the same. Tetras are related to Piranhas I think. And like it was said before, they are very sensitive. Get platies; very hardy and awesome little fish.

there's a difference between the bristle noses and the regular pleco.

the bristle nose (including albino variation) are much smaller, growing out to be 4-6inches as adults.

while the regular brown looking common spotted pleco's grow up to 10in+ in a nice tank.

As for replacements for the neons, I'd go for the Platy's. just don't get black ones. they may get attacked.

if not, you can try glofish or danios. i have silver hatchets in my tank now w/success.
