Tetra tank?

So right now in my 35 gallon I have:
2 head and tail light tetras (probably returning)
2 striped Raphael catfish (probably returning)
8 flame tetras

What other tetras could I add to this?

The options are so extensive...browse the profiles under the characins section. You will find many. Some will not work for various reasons, but many will.

I am assuming this is a 3-foot tank, so this will provide swimming space for those species that like to swim--not the "large" ones, obviously, but many of the small to medium sized are OK.

Also keep your water parameters in mind; some are fairly adaptable if extremes are avoided, some are more demanding of soft water.

Just to make sure...you do realize that not all of the fish Charlie listed will work together? He was just listing "tetra" names.
