Regardless, two schools of tetra's in a 10g tank is probably asking for trouble. Spend the dough on a bigger tank or on replacing dead fishies if you decide to carry this out.

In a heavily planted 10 gallon, 2 schools of six tetras each no larger than black neons would be fine. Yes, even with a half dozen small shrimp. I have done this before and maintained it for 3 months (with a clown pleco on top of all the rest) before my desire for a less cramped aquascape and a shoal od cories lead me to get a 20 gallon tank (and on down the road to galloping MTS).

Logic is only the beginning of wisdom

An observation if I may. When you decide to add co2 Be sure you have a way to regulate it or possible ph fluctuations could prove harmful to fish. DIY co2 can be problematic when attempting to reduce or regulate. Disregaurd if I misunderstood about possible co2 in your ten gal.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
