Wonder if they'd maybe look at bit lost in amongst my cardinals if they don't get a strong yellow colouration.

Its been a while since I've kept tetras ( other than the neons ) The yellows I had were seriously vibrant, as were the Red and black phantoms.

If you want something really vibrant, what do you think of diamond tetras? I really like them now and slightly regretting not getting them at the start..
