How many jumbo neon tetras in a 8 gallon?
 
Hi!
I was thinking around 6 jumbo neon tetras in this tank (fully planted with dwarf hairgrass, flame moss, and some big plants for shade): Fluval Nano Flora Aquatic Plant Kit at PETCO

How does that sound? Can I put any shrimp, etc. in there?

Thanks!

Neons aren't the easiest to keep. They do need softer water, with a lower ph, say no more than 7.2 I would say 8 gal is just too small for schooling fish, who will prefer room to swim. 8 gallons would make a great tank for shrimp. What is your water like? Hard etc? Endlers are really pretty fish and very small, but they prefer hard water.

Read the profiles here and see what others say too.

I have decided to get a couple endlers instead! THanks though!
