I have 3 ornate tetras and can’t find more anywhere. If I get bleeding heart tetras or candy cane tetras will that be a sufficient alternative to a school of its own kind? Some websites say ornate tetras are bleeding hearts without the heart spot and some say they are the same as candy cane tetras so I don’t know what to do.

candy cane tetras are the same species as ornates. they are both bentosi while the bleeding hearts are erythrostigma.

Agree with above, ornate and candy cane are just different common names for the same species of fish.
