A master test kit is a much if you want to keep fish properly and seriously, IMO
. Get the API Freshwater master test kit. Tetras like to be in a minimum group of seven, of the same species, not a mix.
Also, you should be changing water at least once a week. Leaving the tank without water changes for a month is a no no.
Get a test kit. Odds are your aquarium has cycled by now. Monitor for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate, and log your nitrate levels. Keep nitrates below 20ppm if you can (via water changes) and ammonia and nitrite should always read 0.
