Hi, I have 26 neon tetras in a 50 gallon tank (heavily planted) along with 6 kuhli loaches, 6 cory catfish, shrimp, and a siamese algae eater. I want something that schools tightly to look nice as my main fish. I was hoping the neons would do that which they have been a little disappointing. I was wondering if I should find a way to get rid of the neons and get a bunch or rummy noses (and if so, how many with my stock minus the neons) or just get up to about 40 neons and leave it like that. I also want to keep my blue dream shrimp safe from being eaten which i’m worried about rummy noses eating them because they’re a bit bigger than neons. I also live in Texas so the summer may bring my water temp to about 80 degrees max. Thanks in advance!
