I've heard neons are known to sometimes be aggressive. especially if they aren't in large groups. I've heard that groups of like 6 or more are often less aggressive. So I guess it's up to you. Get more, or get rid of the ones you have...

There is no shame in getting rid of fish that aren't working for your tank. it's better to get rid of them then to keep them and have the health of the other fish suffer.

Thank you Dragon! That's so sweet of you! I'm far from the perfect fishkeeper, but God knows I try!

I'm not proud of it, but I'm thinking of rehoming my Neons. They are starting to get agressive! I sware, I have no luck with Tetras! Never again will a Tetra be in my tank!
Infected scale wound. Chemical soup killed it in hours he is doing great.

Glad he is doing better. I originaly misread your post and thought you said HE died in a few hours! I was like OMG you poor thing! Anyway, I'm glad he is well now.

I found a new home for the neons. A real nice woman who is getting her grandaughter a tank for Christmas. They are experenced fishkeepers, so they will be able to help the little miss with her first tank! She has always wanted Neons, so it will be a species tank with maybe a couple Mystery Snails or bottom feeder. Because I will be giving her the 3 Neons and the pfs, granma will have more to put towards extras like maybe plants! I couldn't be happier. I will also be giving her a weeks worth of Ick meds since they only got over it 2 days ago just to be on the safe side.

Going to tell her to keep my number jik I eventually get that male mystery snail and he and magic have babies.

Actually, I don't know her from Adam! I just happen to run into her at WalMart and struck up a conversation on fishkeeping. Wonderful luck there!

She told me about her pleco (spelling?) and other fish. It sounded like a neat breed! She liked the sound of my snail and shrimp as she had never had either before. It was a fun conversation.
