Schoaling tetras in 20g

LoganShaver

Can I keep different species of tetras in smaller groups? Like 3 of each species with around 15-20 fish, will they be as happy if I put 2 species in larger groups?

Stick to one species. In a 20gallon 10-15 of a tetra species is plenty. I wouldn't go as far as 20 specimens.

What about 6 neons and 8 embers?

Please don't try to negotiate with me. In the end it's at your discretion. I myself wouldn't do that stocking.

2 groups of small tetras in a 20g is fine in my opinion. May not be the most natural display and schooling fish will always appreciate a larger group.. But i like the look of different species together so yeah depends how you want your tank.
