I’m not new to the hobby but I was wondering if there is anything I should know for people who have keep the gold neon tetra and the blind cave tetra.

The blind cave tetra will probably push the neons around. They get much bigger and have a kind of rowdy attitude. I once encountered a shoal of hundreds of their colourful sighted version in Belize, and they chewed me from the ankles to the neck (I was in an inner tube being a tourist). It was the most beautiful spa day I can imagine, though I've never been to a spa. They're quick and at imes bossy fish (whether blind or sighted), and neons may not do well with them.
