Very nice! I love tetras.
How large is the tank? How long have the cardinals been in there, and how long has the tank been established? Have you had any deaths, or any issues? What is your pH/KH/GH?

The reason I ask is I am thinking about getting a few of the cardinal tetras, but have read a lot about how they are pretty sensitive.

Thanks guys. It's a 20H gal tank with 9 cardinals, but I did start off with 12. 3 died the first week, not sure if it was my fault, having them shipped, or what, but the rest are going strong for over a year now.

To be honest I really don't test.

I feed them once a day and it's just enough for them all to eat and no more.
I do a 25 percent water change once a month.

Test the water once a month and it's always perfect, and either way I do the water change.

I will post the numbers next time I test.

Maybe it's because I only have 9 small fish in a 20H tank(which I think is a + for both the fish and tank keeper), but these seem very hearty fish.

Fish are so easy to keep as long as you don't overfeed and/or overstock.
