    :grin2:Hello!:smile2: I currently have 3 neon tetras (I've had them for almost a year now). They are doing great but I think they wouldn't be as shy with a few more of them.

    Hi all, I have been researching fish to add to my aquarium. I thought neon tetras would be a nice addition, until I read about neon tetra disease. And how it can wipe out an entire tank and is very difficult to completely eradicate from your tank once it is in there. So, I'm wondering how...

    Hello, I have a problem with one of my neon tetras. Two days back, I got a few golden wonder killifish, since I didn't know they prey on small fish and also nobody at the fish store alerted me.
