neon tetra need groups of about 8, glow light about six, x-ray/pristella are fine at 4 but are slightly bigger and pushier fish

I've gotten away with just a pair of black neons before, but most the neons/tetra will see your betta's fins as a free buffet when they get hungry.

the way to tell that your tetras are hungry is to look away from the tank, if you can't see them when you look away they are hungry.

I have a male-and-female pair of bloodfins in my girl tank, they've NEVER given me any trouble, keep to themselves.
