    Thank you - I take your point about the bioload. The filter seems adequate as the tank environment appears to be quite healthy. Since it cycled, I have not experienced any fluctuations in the...

    Sorry - I don't think I made my self clear enough. What I meant to say is that I prefer platies to neons and if I were to add more fish (big if) I would rather add platies to neons. But as my tank...

    Thank you fishmommie for your kind reply. The only sign my neons are showing is 'constantly hiding out', but they do come out at feed time. So perhaps they may not be too stressed.
