Rummy Nose Tetras in 15 gallon

My brother went to buy his first batch of fish for his newly cycled 54 litre tank today. The store has sold out of neon tetras so he got 6 rummy noses instead. Has anyone kept these in a tank this size?

That's roughly a 15 gallon tank. In my opinion, a little small for rummies, who are active swimmers who like to zoom back and forth. I think a 20-long is the most comfortable minimum size for them. They'll be fine, but I wouldn't put more than six or seven in the tank.

2x20-longs, one heavily planted. Platy rancher. They. Won't. Stop. Breeding.
