Tetras are arent that easy, right? Did you use a separate tank to raise the fry, or was it just a heavily planted tank?
Tetras are the hardest fish there are to get to spawn. You'll hear occasional stories from guys that found fry in their tetra tanks and they were surprised. Tetra's are for the experts.

I though so...

@JuiceBox52 I guess you are a expert ;-)

There used to be a guy on here @Retired Viking . He spawned Glowlight Tetra's several times. Start with those. Never know 'til you try.
I remember him. Seems the last thing he was doing was trying to breed ember tetras. I wonder if he every succeeded...

Nowhere you need to know
If I remember right Tetra fry are almost microscopically small. Very difficult to feed. I've never seen any but I've heard that about them from many sources.
I didn’t notice they were there until almost a week later. They fed off of the algae on the salvinia roots, and I immediately bought vinegar eels to feed them. About a dozen survived the first month and about 4 made it to 6 months. I added them to the adult tank too soon unfortunately and my African leaf fish are 2 of the smaller ones haha so I only ended up with two adults
