Lemon tetra look good in a 'gumi, but I think like most tetras they only school until they have settled in.

Ive got a few green neons, much smaller than cardinals and neons. Personally I've found them to be hardy and a pretty fish, with almost no red, just the green/blue iridescent stripe.

Most tetras will look good, it's purely down to preference. As mentioned, lemon and x-ray tetras look superb in a planted tank as do serpae, head and tail light and black phantoms.

Do you have to have tetras ? My local maidenhead aquatics has a tank full of lampeyes (only £1 each too) and they've inspired me to set up another tank with just them in as they look so good.

IMO go for something small in a 2ft tank. Smaller fish make the tank look bigger as they decieve the eye and you can have a larger shoal of them too.

I'd look at a big shoal of the smaller rasboras, lampeyes, blue-eyes, smaller barbs and danios or smaller tetras as possibles too if you're not restricting yourself just to tetras.
