What specific gravity do you keep it at? Depending on the source, a specific gravity between 1.005-1.010 is considered brackish.
I've been googling neon tetras and brackish water and cannot find one instance that says that this is a good combination. Considering where they are from, that makes sense along with the fact that they are sensitive fish.

the tank is purely freshwater, but i was considering turning it into a brackish tank because i love crabs, and the only one that would seem to fit perfectly is a fiddler, but i suppose that won/t be happening

The Neon is a blackwater fish. Brazil, forest water, Huminhaltig, soft, no salt! Low electrical conductivity.
