For what it's worth, tetras like lots of swim room, so a 10gal is a little tight to do a tetra tank-- it'll work, but they'd love a 20 long. You'll be restricted to a school of smaller types of tetras in a 10g.

"Best" type is totally subjective... neons are often fairly weak, though.

The bleeding heart tetras are cool. I have a few. They do well in schools and swim nearer to the top of the tank... But I'm fairly new at this so...

The only tetras i would put in a ten would be a sm school of neons. Tetras like a lot of swimming room.

Glo-lights look pretty cool, too, and they are small. Or, if you have the funds for shipping fees, check out some of the rasboras on this sight: Nano-Fish

Towards the bottom are some really cool looking fish!!!
