Keep water parameters in check. Ntd aside there is the random neon death thing, they'll just die for no apparent reason.. happens..

It's best not to buy from a tank that has infected tetras in it.
The disease will infect any tetra, it's just most commonly seen in neon and yes neons pop off for seemingly no reason, mainly due to the fact that farmed fish are usually kept in rather poor conditions and wild ones don't transport all that well, making them weaker from the start.
