15 plants in a 15g thats pretty good.

You could go with an all neon tank and have 15-20 total, or have another species like the black neon or rummy nose and have 2 schools of 6-8.

I like heavily planted tanks. My 6.5g with my betta has 21 plants including 5 very large and fast growing wysteria plus a 3rd of tank coverage of floating duck weed. I like them for their filtration properties. I am still yet to get a reading of ammonia in my 6.5g because of the ammonia sucking plants and I like a natural looking tank that my fish can enjoy. 25th is pay day, then I will be stocking the 2ft tank and finishing the aquascaping so I still have over a week to decide on my stocking. I love tetras for their personalities. Each of mine I feel have their own quirks and even though they look the same I can say that's greedy and that's lazy. I am currently having to wait on some news of 2 mollies who may be getting evicted from their tank. Aggresive male annoying everything and my father in law wants to flush him. If he hasn't calmed down before I stock my tank I'm giving him a half way house save him from the toilet! They won't get him another female like they are supposed to.
