Serpaes can be nippy, but with most shoaling fish, having a few more so they can work as a shoal will often sort this out.

With both species, the more you have the more natural they will appear and act, for example 5 Black Neons will act very differently to 20.

Got to admit I like seeing large single shoals, compared to a few of each species.

If you want to see a spectacular sight, concentrate on one species (Find a new home for the ones you don't go for), and get a lot more of the ones you do want.

We would need to know the full stock of fish in the tank to give more specific advise.
