Too hard to choose .

Cardinal Tetras would probably be my favorite by themselves, but glowlights look great mixed in, and Von Rio Flames too.

I saw some Neon Tetras in a tank at our local library back in England when I was only about 7 or 8 years old and was fascinated by them. They've been my favorites ever since.

I'd love to be able to try all the tetras before choosing a favorite, if I could, so I just went with the old classic, the neon tetra.

The first tetra I got was the neon tetra but I didn't know they were prey to the angelfish and my angelfish ate some of them...

Flame tetras, aka von rios are my favorites, though I'm really liking the congos now that I have them....both of which aren't on the list.

I'm going to go with the Bloodfin tetra because I like their not so overly transluscent body and their bright red fins They have been in my tank since the start and I think it would be weird without their crazy swimming around the tank antics.

I'm not sure why this poll is closed, and I can't re-open it, but considering there are more tetras than will fit in any poll on this forum, we can just leave things at people entering the name of their favorite tetra, if they wish to take part, rather than having a duplicate of this thread.

I was able to re-open the poll.
However, as sds said, feel free to just name your fav if it's not listed.

Cardinal Tetras or the rare Sailfin Tetra. Both are really pretty IMO.

Yep. Polls are different creatures than regular threads. It's not a matter of answering a given question, but a matter of registering an opinion. As such, it tends to be much more acceptable for them to keep going.

I voted neons, but my favorite(s) are actually neons and cardinals! They look so much alike I can't really choose one over the other.
