Actually, I personally think that's backwards. I find cardinals to be much hardier. Neon Tetras have been so overbred these last few years that it's not unusual for you to lose quite a few from a new school, because they are weak. I hope that's not the case with yours, but should you have any issues with them, definitely let us know and we'll see how we can help.
