    Your crayfish will eventually get big enough to eat the tetra. For now, if the crayfish are tiny the neons may go after them. Fish are opportunistic feeders and will eat anything they think will fit in their mouths and can catch. Also, there is no such thing as a jumbo neon tetra. Neons grow to about 2 inches in properly maintained tanks and the bigger ones, or jumbo ones, are just older fish.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Thanks for the respond, this neon tetra were a gift and they buy them on petsmart and that was the name on the label, I don't think the crayfish will fit in their mouth but maybe they will try to eat them right? The tetra are like 1 inch

    They may bug the crayfish and they may not. Just keep an eye on them and be prepared to take action if needed.

    Cray fish and fish are useually not s good combo. Either the fish eats the cray fish or vice versa. The crays molt and are easy prey then (even if its jusg their legs). And when the fish sleep the cray fish feed.... A tall tank with top water fish would be the only thing i can suggest but thats not on this topic. Eventally those crays will est those tetras

    They are in a 20g tall, I will keep an eye on them don't
    wanna lose the cray. When I have the money will
    have to buy another tank for the tetras. What other
    fish I can put with the neon tetra?. And what plant is recommended for them? Is the first time having
    tetras, I usually have and raise cichlids.

    Corydoras catfish are small, active schoolers, and good to keep with neon tetras, as are other tetra species or guppies. Pretty much anything tiny and peaceful is good for keeping with tetras. In other words, the opposite of most cichlids.
    I hate hearing people say "it's only a $3/$5/$1 fish/shrimp, so it's ok if it dies, I can just get another." It's still an animal! All animals should be treated like they're worth $10,000.

    ....although I really don't advocate cories, or any bottom dwellers for that matter, with crayfish. Yes, the crayfish are small now, but they will grow.

    Speaking as somone who has kept Neons and Marbed crays together, it should not be a problem. Most crawfish are agressive, but you will see that Marbeled crays have much smaller pinchers than a normal crawfish and are supprisingly less agressive than the normal ones. maybe this is because they are all femails and do not compete for mates, maybe it is just their nature?

    Of course, yours might prove me wrong, but I think they will be fine together.

    One thing to note is that the crays can take the warm temps needed by the tetras, but it would prefer cooler temps..

    Good luck,

    I meant if the crayfish would be removed, as I'm fairly sure will happen.
    Crayfish are opportunistic hunters, fish are available food. Neons, maybe, but make sure the crays are very well-fed.
