Would Neon Tetra's be ok in 15g Column tank?

And if so what would be the maximum number you would suggest?
I will also take any other recommendations on fish stock.

As always thanks guys!

I've had tetras. They swim more side to side rather than up and down. You could turn it into a shrimp tank or maybe some guppies would work. Anything small and swim up and down.

I've had some guppies in there and it wasn't a great experience for the same reason. I am trying to really just find a nano sized schooling fish that I could keep maybe 5-6 of, before I give up and just go with a single male Betta or Dwarf Gourami. Would Ember tetra's be any better given they are slightly smaller? Thanks again!

I would love these actually! So hearing that makes me excited, but I'm guessing I'll have to order them, since I've never heard of them until I did extensive research.

Wow. Not a lot of side to side movement.

Would pencil fish work? I know they swim vertically but I'm not sure how big of a tank they need.
