Generally, yes, but there are some exceptions. Some are notorious fin nippers. Some general things about tetras, they must be in groups of at least six of each species, preferably more. They all like planted tanks with subdued lighting. Some can manage fine in slightly basic water, some need soft slightly acidic water. Iamntbatman mentioned your water parameters earlier, so that needs to be answered before selecting species. Have a look at our fish profiles. Tetras are characins, so they are listed under that in the profiles; you can get there by clicking on "Tropical Fish Profiles" in the blue bar across the top, second from the left.
