Hello, I am looking to stock a heavily planted 15 gallon tank with either cardinal tetra or all male guppies. I don't want to do both, it's one or the other. Leaning towards Cardinals, but any thoughts? Thanks

Far less behavioural problems with Cardinals IME. These are model citizens though someone had a bully in a recent thread just to prove me wrong!

Question - My Cardinal Tetra School Has A Bully?

My male guppies constantly fought and killed each other. Possibly not a good idea to keep them without females!

There are also problems keeping them with females due to endless unwanted fry and shortened female lifespans.

Females seem very compatible with each other but even the best ones are not as colourful as the males. Worth considering though.
