From personal experience what have you found to be the most peaceful? I ask this because I was originally told that they are all peaceful only to discover otherwise. I'm trying to get a better idea of what im dealing with so i can make better decisions in the future. so if you could list the tetras youve delt with, how many you had of each (at one time) from most aggressive to least I'd be grateful.

For me in my short experience its been

6 redeyes-most aggressive
6 silvertips
6 lemons
6 black neons- least aggressive

I think I'll stick with black neons in the future, they seemed very peaceful even when i only had 3

Serpae tetras were the most aggressive tetra I've dealt with.

I had a school of 6 who non stop pestered and eventually killed my dwarf gourami in a 65 Gallon tank. :(

Needless to say I got rid of them REAL quick- Nasty little things.

Right now I have Black Phantom tetra's who bother not a single sole in the community.
