Default Tetra's are awesome! What Tetra's do you have in your tanks?

My first experience with with tetra's was when I was 12, I had 6 neons, my betta ate them and I never replaced them, it was very short lived lol.

Anywho I havent had tetra's since and I just invested in 3 Bloodfin tetras to help cycle my 20 gallon long planted tank and they are seriously cool fish! Incredibly social and active, its relaxing to watch them.

Now I am curious as to how many of you also have tetra's? What types? Which tetra is your favorite and why?

Feel free to share pictures too!

I have 4 von rios, they school most of the time, but not always. Their funny little fish. I have a couple neons too. Tetras are not my favorites, which is why I don't have so many, but really cool when you have a lot and they school in a big swarm.

We've got 10 black neons, and I love watching them, too-they're very inquisitive, and since they're all we have in there right now, they make use of every inch of the tank. I love watching them line themselves up.

Those bloodfins are pretty. We were thinking about adding some cardinals eventually, because the middle of the tank looks so bare right now.
