Tetras In Semi Aggressive?

    I have a semi aggressive tank currently 60 gal. Current stocking established for several months with
    1 blue gourami
    8 rosy barbs
    1 PAIR Bolivian ram dwarf chichlid
    1 female krib
    3 panda Cory
    3 speckled Cory
    5 green Cory
    1 red fin shark
    1 medium angelfish (yup... she has no issues with barbs)

    My question: I really want a SMALL schooling fish that’s medium/upper tank. I love neon tetras. You think they’d make it in my tank in a larger-ish school? Or do you have suggestions for a mini/small very colorful schooling fish ?

    Cardinals would cope better with a wider temperature range and larger size than neons. They pretty much look the same.

    And please do get at least 6 of each Cory species :)

    You don’t think having 18 Cory is too many? I’d need another green and 3 more each of panda and peppered

    Oof, I didn't see the pandas.

    You may have to rehome some to a 20 Gallon long. They should always be in groups of 6 (at the very least).
