welcome to AA

tetras are schooling fish and should be kept in groups of 6-7+. they are also very active swimmers, which is why I would recommend nothing smaller than a 10g tank for any tetra species (some 20g).

IMO, shrimp or snails would be the only appropriate choices for a 2g tank.

It means In My Opinion

I agree that shrimp and snails are about it. Not even a Betta. They have a five gallon minimum.
