You could do more like 10-15 Pygmy Cories. They only reach half an inch! And they will come out more if they have more friends.

Flame - Red and Blue Veiltail Male
Oswald - Blue Halfmoon Male

olympia- yes the tank will be planted and I'll have to look in to cockatoo cichlids.

I'm gonna stick with pygmy cories.

I read on a different website that all tetras will schoal togather like cardinals will schoal with black tetras is that true cause I think that would be kinda cool to have a couple of different colors???

GIVING AWAY PLANTS? REAL OR FAKE, I'LL TAKE THEM

3 males: Mardi (OHM) - Mason (HMPKCTEE) - Maddux (HMPK)
1 female: Mercedes (Undecided again) Maybe VT or Delta

I have a 30 tall tetra tank. My neons and my glowlight tetras school together. They don't really hangout with my skirted tetras though.

Tetras are my favorite period. I have never had a problem with mine.

I've kept several species of tetras together is various sized tanks. In a large tank, they did not school together. In a smaller tank, one might think that they schooled together. In my experience, the smaller the tank, the more it seems like different species are "schooling" - because they are being forced to share the same water. Just an observation I've made keeping the same fish in different size tanks.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

I love my tetras. I've currently got a group of 8 pristellas in the tank with my betta. If you have a choice, the cardinal and red minor tetras are really good looking. I always like something red in my tanks.
