So feeding, I've read everywhere not to over feed your fish, basicaly "not more then they can eat in 5 minutes, not more then 3 times a day", etc.. So why do the Neon Tetra keep getting eaten? I originally thought it was the goldfish eating them overnight, but this morning I saw one of the Red Eyed Tetra swimming around with part of a Neon body.. Any info any one of your seasoned enthusiasts can offer? \:)
welcome to the forum :D first things first. how big is the tank? goldfish are cold water fish, and the tetras are tropical fish (warm water 78 degrees F). so already they dont mix.
