I love a big shoal of Neons or Rummynose. Congos are lovely. I really liked my Glowlights. They seem under appreciated by most.

I plan to do a tank of them one day. Working on my large project at the moment so no time.

My first choice is the venerable Serpae tetra followed by the Rummynose!

I know neons are the 'go to' tetra but they look neat in a planted tank.

I adore Cardinal Tetras. There are few people who don't appreciate a large school of them

My favorites are the Emperor Tetras. Super fun to watch, always up to something. I love the blue sheen on the males too.

Rummynose is a close second for me, but I can't keep them unless I do partial RO in my tank - not ready for the time/cost commitment to that yet.

I also have a school of neons, because they do look great with plants!

hmm, I'm going to have to go with Cardinals. 2nd would be rummynose.

I don't currently have any tetras in any of my tanks, but once I clear out some stock, one of those 2 varieties will be next on my list!

I'm a fan of the Green Fire Tetras. They're great when they mature. I just wish I could find more around here

Ive grown a huge soft spot for cardinal tetra after completely avoiding neons and cardinals until now.

Tetras, tetras. All are great. Like it says under my name. "Adipose fins are cool". OS.
