Tetras For 55g (75g) Tank

Hello. I have a 55g aquarium currently and I am wondering what tetras you recommend for it. It's current stock is:

x1 angelfish
x2 L. curvicep
x9 diamond tetra
x7 Cardinal Tetra
x1 peppered Cory
x3 panda Cory
x1 albino bushynose pleco
(I know full!)
I plan on getting rid of the diamond tetras as I have seen them nipping the fins of my angel

I'd love to add some color to the tank, I know that the cardinals do and I'd love more. I plan on upgrading it to a 75 or 90 around mid summer so just another idea! If you have any other suggestions for a stock I would LOVE to hear them!

Flame tetras, bloodfin, rummynose, and Black widows tetras should work. You could look at bosmai rainbow fish, you could keep a nice size school since your upgrading. I would boost your cory cat number 2.

Thank you for the ideas. I'm really thinking about getting some rummynose or flames. Ahh! I love both of those. I plan getting more cories soon, so no worries there.

No problem. I have a school of flames and I love them.

Just looked it up and it's this: Emperor 400 Pro Series Bio-wheel Power Filter. I hope to get a canister but I'm waiting for a few well aquarium part filled sales!

I think all pale in comparison to a school of Hyphessobrycon pulchripinnis, no tetra looks better in my opinion.
