Neons

Ok,

My tank is shaping up (75 gallon).

I have 6 ottos, 5 marbled corries, and 33 neons.

Now what?

What would be a nice, easy to maintain, and interesting tank mate(s) to finish up the stocking list?

a bunch more of some other kind of tetras would work for your tank.....See whats available in your area fish stores........Rummynoses look great with neons.......Just a suggestion

A group of Harlequin Rasporas would be nice do not let the color you see in the pet store fool you they get a pretty red tint when they get comfortable and are not stressed out. I have 6 in my 44 gallon as well as 6 Neons and they look really pretty swimming in there little groups. Here is a picture of what they look like:

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

iv got a 50 gallon tank with 12 neons 6 silver hatchet fish 3 pearl gourami 6 zebra danios and 2 zebra loaches and they all get along great. if your interested in zebra loaches though get a minimum of 5, i got 2 and found out they like to stay in groups of 5 or more but by time i went back to my lfs to get more they were out of stock

its a half a inch of water and you think your gunna drown

Recently added some Lemon Tetras to one of my tanks . They are quite handsome I think.
Had to ask fish store to order them for me. They had a couple but I wanted a dozen. Considering that I spend money at their shop,, they had no problem with my request. Perhaps this would be something to consider?

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Yeah, I like the Lemons too. They color up real nice once they settle into the tank.
