I have got a 2.5 feet by 1 feet by 1 feet tank with 17 Neon Tetras and they have been doing well for the last 1 year. Well the number has come down from 24 to 17 over a year but they are doing reasonably well.

My LFS has whatsapped me some good looking lemon tetras.

Should I fall in for the temptation of getting about 12 of these or should I resist and enjoy the Neon only tank? Anyone have kept this combination either exclusively or in combination with other fish?

So that is what, a 20 gallon?
I think you should stick with what you have,
Maybe add one or 2 khuli loaches to service the bottom?
What temperature are you running?

I live in Bangalore which is in the tropics so I do not need to worry about temperature except in December and January.
I have hard gravel as substrate - would kuhli loaches do well in that?

Also I have a hope of breeding the Neons. Have heard of some anecdotes where they seem to have bred in a such a set up.
