Def cardinals as they are awesome in colour when fully grown..

Note to Blue.
I used to have problems with neons all the time until I changed my supplier 2 years ago and since then I take in 100-200 every week and I haven't lost 1 to NTD..
There are good supplies of neons out there it is just a matter of sourcing them.

Prices are indeed outrageous, not scandalous( ).
I'd rather go fish-watching on lfs.

See here. For Pete's sake, neons cost 25 pesos each and cardinals are 75 pesos each.

Thanks, Derek. Might have to ask my friend where he got those neons.:)

Yeah, neons are like a third of the cost of cards. Cardinals are a little bit prettier, but not 200% prettier, and even if I lose half the neons I get to disease (and I am running about 20% losses to date), I'd still say they're the better fish for me.

I guess I prefer the neons because they are smaller, I love the blue-green color, and they are such a classic fish. Cardinals seem to very popular right now, and because of that neons actually seem 'different', if that makes any sense.

I stick with neons personally. Cardinals arent easily found around here and cost almost 4 times as much as neons. Maybe I've gotten lucky in terms of disease but I havent lost a neon to sickness in quite a while...also could be that I spend more than a half an hour inspecting almost everything in the tanks at the lfs before actually buying anything. If anything in that tank looks like it has even a trace of disease I won't be buying anything and the people that work at the smaller local shops (who see me rather regularly) know it lol. I'd like to think that keeps them more inclined to keep healthier fish knowing they can't sell anything to me that is even living with another sick fish.
