Different types of tetras schooling?

Do different types of smaller tetras school together?
Thanks!

Hmm. Ive never seen that before. If by school, yo mean coexist, most tetras that are small love each other. if by school, you mean swim together, i dont think so. cardinals and neons are about the closest you get to different species schooling. hope this helps!

Yes they do. My cardinals, neons, bloodfins & golds have schooled together at times.

As long as the individual specie's schools are large enough and your tank is large enough they'll form a large shoal. :> Pretty fun to watch

IME similar looking fish school together. For example my neons, black neons and glowlights all schooled together. I have also seen bleeding hearts, black phantoms, and bloodfins school together in a tank.

Different species shoal together but as for actual schooling it's not likely unless they are very closely related.
