Never said anything about them being tropical or not in the first place. I said they would wreck havoc on plants...
I would go with rummynoses, they school much more than neons usually do. Unless there is a fish that would try to eat them, say angels... They also school with no predator in the tank, so you won't lose them from that.
You could also get the Aqueon water changer, same thing pretty much.
Keep the 250, that is one huge tank that is also expensive. Lots of options too.
