You were given this advice in your other thread?
your current set up is fine with the two tetra's and increasing both those schools will help them out.
but i wouldn't add any other species of tetra. 6 is barely considered a school (in my opinion).

I too would add to your present schools. If I were to choose another tetra it would be a school of glowlights. They usually stay lower down in the tank.Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..
Please remember; every keystroke has a consequence.

+1 to increasing your Cardinals by about double at least. I also like Strider's suggestion of the glowlights, if you do add another school.Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.
