Hi all! I've got a 55 gal tank I'm considering filling up with 75-100 neon tetras but haven't decided on them yet. I really want something that's at least that bright but as easy to breed as a platy and one that will also school very well. Any fish that meet 2 of 3 or even all three of these characteristics.
That might be interesting. My plan is to fill the tank will lots of driftwood branches and cover the branches with moss an have the bottom covered in that short grass like plant. I jumped to the thought of neons because with so much brown and green the reds and blues would pop nicely.
I love my neons. I have my tank filled with wood and plants and the neons glow. I was shocked the first time I saw those glowing stripes in a school. They look so pretty. I also just started keeping guppies. They school with the neons for some reason. All those colors together look beautiful.
