Neons in a 10 gallon. It largely depends on how many other fish you are going to put in. Myself I wouldn't add any more than twelve, six at an absolute minimum. If you add more than eight split them up into two batches about a week apart. Test your water after the first batch and so long as you get no ammonia or nitrite spike add the second batch a week later. This gives the biofilter time to adjust to the new loading.

The only things that happen quickly in an aquarium are bad things.
