What are some higher temperature tetras which school really well?

I'll go have a look at your video now, thanks!

Good to know the Kribs were ok in your tank, would it be safer to just have one? Or would that just be sad for the fish?
Depending on what else you want you could easily keep 50-100 since they only get to 2.5" if you focus on your water changes but you couldn't keep much else.

Cardinal tetras work too for schooling in larger tanks and you could easily keep 100+
