Thanks B. Last night I used a 5-in-1 test to get: Ph 7.5

A 20g long is not much space, to the fish. Depending upon what we learn about the above GH, a group of 5-6 corys total is perfect. And the neons can be increased to around 12.
Kh 80 ppm
Gh 150 ppm
Nitrite 0 ppm
Nitrate 20 ppm I am slightly colorblind (not so much that I can't differentiate colors themselves, but I can't see different shades of the same color, or similiar shades of analogous colors) so I had my wife check these and she wasn't as into it as me... This looks to be ok for the Cories and Livebearers, but the Tetras are probably suffering from this. What should be my next step?
