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.

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???

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.

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.

I love pencilfish. I'd do them instead of tetras!
