HY511 tetras will be more like your dots. Most tetras will be that way. Only good schoolers are Rummy's, Penguins, and Cardinals. Funny thing is, Cardinals school better when there is little to no aquascape in the tank.

The HY511's will be perfect than for my dots at the lower level of the tank right? In youtube vids, they appear to most often be at the bottom. Thanks!

Speaking of Lemons, I started with a group of 7, then had a pH crash in the tank, leaving me with 2. From those 2 back in 2008, I now have about 85-95 offspring. They just won't stop shaggin. I can't give them away fast enough. But they're nice peaceful fish that get along well with anything and don't seem to be phased by a bit of aggression.
