P.s. @ shellieca. The 1/2 gallon is smaller than my other normal tank. I looked at its box again and realised it says 15 litres not 1.5 ! Sorry for my typo. But now im wondering how frequently i should be cleaning it? Thanks.
OH that makes a difference, MUCH BETTER SIZE!!!! I would do a 50% twice a week with maybe a 100% once a month.

I don't know if you've done this or not, but theres no need for a 100% water change, I'd only do a 50%. And I'd be testing the water with a liquid test kit for ammonia, nitrites, nitrates, & Ph - DAILY. The neons could've died for any number of reasons, bad stock, ammonia in the water, etc. It's up to you if you want to empty the entire tank.

After stopping by the pet store, I picked up a ton of live plants. Now there's a mix of faux and live plants in there. My betta is having a hay day. The new fish is acting a little skiddish, but he was even more skiddish in the pet store. I think he's just tired. He's had such a busy day. Again, I forgot the algae wafers. >.< I bought a test kit, but the store had tested my water for me, since I brought in a sample. They said I was all good, and since the nitrate increase was so little, it was probably due to the tank cycling. I'll try and post a pic of my tank soon. Everyone is hiding, except for Dovakiin. Who knows where he'll be next, though. He's a happy camper. :P
