Hello.
I am currently cycling a 240 litre fish tank with 9 neon tetra and after cycling, I don't know yet what fish to consider buying.
Black ghost knife fish interest me but they grow too big, and cow fish look cool but they're marine fish.

So here's the question:
What is the most exotic, colourful, unique, peaceful freshwater fish that stays small and are compatible with neon tetras that you can think of?

Thanks

Link not working, but I like Rachel O'Leary too and noticed one little letter missing


You can learn more about some rare nano fish from the species spotlights on her youtube channel.
Fixed thanks. I've ordered hundreds of dollars of fish from her. Always well shipped, healthy, and colorful. Never an issue. Probably 75% of my 300 gallon and 85% of a 200 gallon stock is from her.

One of my large multi colonies started with her fish. They're some of the nicest coloured fish I have

Rams are relatively small. I love my German blue Rams. They are super fun to watch and very colorful. If you have neons, your tank may be too cool for GBRs but Bolivian Rams tolerate cooler water, though they're not as colorful.

Have you considered Apistogramma borelli? (They're fine in cooler temps)
