Rummy vs. Neon

The tank is a 33 gal GLA. I wanted to know if I should get neon green tetras or rummy nose tetras. I have heard that rummys school tightly, but they are larger. Neons are very small but not as tight of schoolers. Which should I get?

Go for the rummys. They're less pedestrian.

Hey another Oregonian! I also was leaning toward the rummys, but I still don't know for sure.

I had both. Rummies were a lot more fun to watch. It's like neons were dumb-founded in the tank. Lost. The rummies were everywhere, together! Rummies for the win!!

LMAO@PEER PRESSURE**!!

Gotta go with the neons as well. "Pedestrian" doesn't necessarily mean "not absolutely gorgeous".
