Ember tetras are nice. I have a small school with orange flash Apistograma. I like them!
I didn't think I would ever get them but for the longest time my 140 seemed bare. I picked up a large school of of glow light tetra (Hemigrammus erythrozonus). They actually turned out looking pretty darn neat. The red line and red dot in their eyes picks up the red in all my lighting and 'glows' a iridescent red color. They pretty much hang out and swim together.
I agree with the CPD, shy critter. Tried them, don't like the behavior.
Being a 7' 140 gallon tank I also picked up a school of black neon tetra. Now these to me look exactly like the glow lights but has a dark iridescent line. They mix in my 140 pretty nicely. Both schools will all mix up, then head off in their own way trying to school with their own species...
