Alternate for Neons?
At the start of the day, I had 10 Neon Tetras. Due to difficulties, i now have 5. So i was wondering, since the problems im having arent going to change, What would be a good alternate for neons? Im looking for something just a little bigger in size
There are many many different fish out there. How big do you want to go.. and what are you willing to spend? Do you just want something you can pick up at petsmart or something that might take a bit of searching?
Edit: Wait until the neon issues resolves itself. Either they die off or none die for at least a week.
Not to big but not as small as neons. Money is not an issue.
white clouds minnows! look like baby salmon.
Glowlight tetra are pretty hardy and just a little larger than neons. They are able to survive in much harder water. Bloodfin tetra are another option, too. Harlequin rasbora are also nice.
I love harlequin Rasboras, I currently have 6. Aha. And bloodfin tetra, im unfamiliar with that tetra, kindof surprising. I was thinking maybe penguin tetras? Im not sure how those would do.
I would avoid bloodfin, they tend to be more aggresive then the standard "community" tetra and special considerations do have to be made.
Ok ill go against bloodfins, they are very good looking though. I think i will avoid the penguin tetras. I could get more Harlequins, maybe Cardinals. I just want to make sure they are big enough where they wont get caught like the neons.
What do you guys think about a group of Blushng Barbs? Or do you think they would be too agressive?
6 Harlequin Rasboras
5 Neon Tetras
4 Diamond Tetras
1 Rainbow Shark
3 Banjo Cats
This is a 56 Gallon aquarium, with how things hve went i will probably soon return the neons.
What is causing the Neons to die? I haven't seen a problem that someone hasn't been able to fix on here.
