They are the most easy to get and cheapest species to begin with.
But which one is best to start with, depends mostly on a question you have to ask yourself : do you want a solitairy species or a shoaling species ?
If yoy want a shoaling species then yes, reds are a good start.

If you however prefer a solitairy species, a Serrasalmus species would suit you better smile.gif
