You may choose other but I think this selection that I picked would look great in you Amazon Tetras Aquarium.

I left out the Black Skirt tetras and the Serpae Tetras due to the fact that they can be fin nippers or eat your Ember tetras, False Neons, Reed tetras, Endler's Guppies; this also goes the same with Colombian tetras.

Your Welcome!

That's how you would stock a 70 on? Virtually all those fish are schooling fish and should be kept in a sufficient group of their own kind. That's really a hodgepodge of fish. I call that the Noah's ark stocking - 2 of everything. We all find different things attractive, but 40? pairs of fish in a tank is not a pretty sight in my opinion. Moreover, a tank full of tetras is really boring in my experience.

Last thing, 80+ fish (almost 40 species) is just not responsible stocking.
