You could also make a school of the different strains like diamond head normal lemon or 5 of endlers for top 5 neon's for middle.

I toyed around with having a couple of different kinds of fish in the tank but have moved away from that idea. It's a small tank, and I think it would make more of an impact to have just the one species in it. (And maybe a snail later on.)

Nope. Not interested. I want all neon tetras or all endlers of the same strain.

(edit: I'm not 100% sure that I'll be able to distinguish strains that have similar markings. What I really want is a group of fish with the same kind of colouration or patterning.)

How hard is your water. If hard, mine goes to endlers, if soft, mine goes to neons. But endlers are more interesting. LOL

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

My pH is 6.4. I haven't measured GH and KH since the first couple of days because I have only the test strips.

So, neons would be better in that pH? I have been leaning much more towards endlers.

My test readings this morning:

Ah, well. That seals it, then. I want to have a healthy environment for happy fish. Neons, it is.
