Went to the LFS this morning and picked up my first fish, seven neon tetras. I spent an hour acclimating them to my water and then put them in.
My little characins immediately started to shoal together but went right for the one place I didn't think they would, to the back of the tank by the air stone, heater, and by the filter intake. As soon as they got in the big tank their color perked right back and they started to swim about enthusiastically.
I'd imagine their new home is a bit overwhelming, they were kept in the store in a tank with no decorations, not even a substrate, now they're dumped into a huge tank full of plants, caves, and sand. Hopefully they'll settle down and start to explore soon. They'll get their first feeding tonight.
