Neon tetras prefer cooler water than cardinal tetras would appreciate and would not be a good fit in the long term. One or the other would be uncomfortable = stress,= sick fish.
In my expierience,neons do best in the long term with temperatures not much above 75 degrees F while cardinals prefer temps between 78 and 82 degrees.
Both prefer rather soft water as opposed to hard ,alkaline water.
