tankmates for neon tetras

Rate this Entry
Hi All
This is my first post so please excuse my mistakes. I have a well planted 20 gallon aquarium with 10 neon tetras, 4 ghost shrimp and 2 Jave Ferns. Looking for sugestions on what fish to add in with them. I tried Red Minor Serpae Tetras but that didn't go well they were way to agressive and neons started die. Fin nipping was a big issue still have 4 neons with bits of their tales missing.

Thanks for your ideas.

    I have 8 neons in a 55 gallon tank, and they have been doing extremely well. I would recommend a pair or a trio of dwarf gouramies. 2 or 3 black skirt tetras would do well, if you like black, anyway. Guppies are another good choice for tankmates. You could also try rummynose tetras. If none of these are appealing to you, go to a library and get a book on aquarium fish species. That's what I did. Hope this helps!
