Are they still really young or something? Also, I fed them this morning and they didn't take flakes off the top. But rather the leftovers floating down from the swords eating. Do I need some kind of tetra food now?
I don't know about the dot thing, but you shouldn't have to worry about it.
My Neon tetras do not go to the top of the tank when I feed them either. They just stay near the bottom and get whatever is left over. Don't worry about that.
I would get at least 1 or 2 more Tetras to keep them happy. They like groups of 6 or more.
