Wondering which fish apart from blue tetra will look good?

My new scape is doing great, added amino and fire cherry shrimp last week, soon be time to add some fish.

I’m looking for a single shoal.

I like the blue neon/cardinal tetras as with a tank thats mainly green, on the many YouTube vids, they stand out well.

Chatting to the local guy I got my shrimp off, while he admits he doesn’t know much about aquscaping, he said that he’s watched many YouTube vids and think they look excellent, but so many of them have the cardinal tetra in, and suggested I have a look at other options before deciding.

One he suggested looking at was the fork tail rainbow.

My tank looks like the attached pic, I’m not convinced the fork tail rainbow will stand out very well, I know it’s down to personal preference, I just wondered what colourful shoals others use with a very green tank (back glass is black).

I’m still heading towards cardinal or blue neon tetras, but am open to expanding my mind :)

many thanks

How big is the tank, looks around 60cm?

Also, how hard or soft is your tank water?

If you are just going single species, you have lots of options to be honest, but a tetra species is a safe bet.

In short, set up looks brilliant so I’m sure any schooling small fish would enhance it further. Something bright to stand against the shadier parts
