Petco has tetras on sale for $1, so I might as well go ahead and stock this tank already!
I'm thinking maybe 6-7 neons and 6-7 silver tip tetras.. (I already have 3 green cories) I know I could stay on top of water quality, plus neons really don't work with the 1 inch per gallon since they're so slender. Body mass is really more accurate.
Would cories bother the neons? Their mouth is big enough... Would silver tips bite anyone? I hear their fin nippers, but there aren't any guppies or bettas in the tank. :P
