EDIT: well, the third one died. At this rate I wont have any tetras left...dang
Not all fish are created equal. In my experience with neons, it's common for a few to die off in the first few days. I mean, you bought 20 of them - did you pick out all 20 individually? No, of course not (I hope...). They netted bunches at a time probably. Some of those fish are going to be healthy/higher quality than others and the stress of being bought and moved and all can be too much sometimes for weak fish.
