Turnsout its not black enough for my taste (if some have ideas of what to use let me know).

So want to go for the paracheirodon simulans (green neon tetra), now im in bit of doubt of how many i should get. myself i was thinking of 15.
The shop could only order a minimum of 25 so should i take 25 or less?

Thanks!
