That sounds like a great combination to me! Just remember to stock slowly and put in the hardiest fish first

I would honestly take out the danios to active and 10 is way to much bioload for a 10 gallon it mgiht be OK but adding those cories it woudlnt be right itwoudl be overcrowded as well. I would stick with teh school of cories and add a centerpiece fish. Or another school of a small sedatee species. Once again that site that estimates the stocking levels is very general and thoguh works somewaht with smaller fish it doesn't in all cases and you really shoudl get used to not using that Rolling Eyes .

For the neon tetras the pH is not nor hardness. The main issue as often times you will see large die offs when you get schools since they are very susceptable to disease at first. This is because most are raised in an antibacterial solution or osmething like that. But I have yet to lose 1 out of the 9 I have gotten. 4 the first time then a year and bout 2 months later 5 more. My pH is 8.0 KH is 16dkh and my gh is by all odds high as well. They show beutiful colors and the only issue with having htem in harder water is there inability to breed successfully and not many people take on the challenge of breeding neons as it is.

I reckon if you want to go with tetras as a feature fish, you can't go past glowlights. personally I would simply have a school of 6 glowlight tetras and say 4 shrimp of some kind. hunt around for a really decent bogwood peice(s), some rocks, add a good serving of plants and you have yourself a really snazzy little tank!

shrimp are really interesting little creatures! and they shed their shell every now and then! cooler than cories in my oppinion.

or another interesting tank would have 3 dwarf puffers and 3 ottos. I haven't kept dwarf puffers but I reckon they'd be a great pet. for info on them, this website is really great.

keep us updated with what you decide to do!
