I had a wierd dream the other night that you were only allowed to post here if you kept neons and lived in California. I was quite hurt.

My embers are just ridiculously chilled, and don't school any more, so it's really frustrating trying to count them. >:(

I have 6 Neon Teras in my Betta tank if there is one thing I've noticed is they can be a bit of a bully school. They seem to like wait until my betta fish isn't looking then go up and nip his tail. They don't do any harm, there is no damage to his tail I think they do it just to gauge he reaction as my betta fish has a tendency to try and catch them.

I went to the pet store and there was a male with all of his fins bitten at by neon tetras.

I keep a mixed flock of 7 neon and 4 glowlines. They are fun to watch cruising around the middle of my big tank. They've gotten big enough so that they come up and snatch pellets from my sorority girls at feeding time. The bettas are chill, they return the favor by eating some of the mini pellets for the tetras.

I've had my neons for about 4 months now, and two weeks ago I put my betta in, and so far they haven't had any issues. They just run when he swims by.

This tank is only three months old, so we'll have to see how they do long term. I did have a few of them die within a few days of purchase (and thanks for the ich outbreak too) but the ones that made it are doing really great. Unfortunately the ich episode did cost me my original Farlow and one of my original sorority girls

I've since read they are a pretty common vector for ich, but that's water under the bridge now. I do hope they continue to do well, cause they are pretty, and cause I would rather not have that happen again now that the tank is fully stocked!

Neons or cardinals are my favorite tetras. I also like glowlight tetras. I saw some black phantom tetra recently that are so cool. I've never owned any tetras myself, but I will soon when I set up my 55 gallon!

My neons arnt very active, they spend most of the day sitting around except during feeding times. Any reason this could be?
