    Okay so I've belonged to this forum for two months know and come to respect all your opinions, so i'm asking your advice on stocking. I'm going to put together another order and have several choices to consider. I have a 75 gal "tetra tank" with 8 Emperor tetras, 12 Harlaquin rasboras, 8 three lined Pencilfish and 16 cardinal tetras.

    I'm going to order 20-24 tetras and have already changed my mind at least half a dozen times. Heres my options:
    12 Red Phantoms and 12 Lemon Tetras or
    12 Rummy noses and 10 more cardinals or
    10 Cardinals and 10 marble hatchets or
    12 White Fin Tetra (HY 511) and 12 Rummy noses or 12 Lemon Tetras

    I've also considered Flame Tetra's in some sort of combo.

    What would you do and why? Thanks in advance for your help.

    I would do the rummy's and cardinals because I like rummy's and cardinals look better in large groups. They would make an interesting contrast of color in the tank.
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    I have 6 cards and 6 rummy nose together in my 55g tank. They look great together. Rummy nose and cards compliment each other very well. They have slightly different habits in the tank so you get to see the differences in how they act together in groups! I would also keep cards in slightly larger groups then rummy's, they are smaller and a little more fragile. Hope this helps

    No matter what you will be happy with your decision!

    I'd also go with more cardinals. IMHO, there isn't anything better in FW fish keeping than a large school of cardinals or neons.
