    Triton said exactly what I was thinking.

    It could be a coincidence. Many know neons to be finicky little fish that can die very easily. Especially if it already had an unidentified lump, maybe it was sick.

    An already weakened neon would probably die very easily with a small disturbance. Perhaps a small ammonia spike with the addition of the rams did it in, or maybe it got stressed about the new tank mates.

    I have had a ram with neons before and I just have a hard time seeing thins being a neon that was directly attacked and killed.

    Everything becomes a snack once it's dead.

    Thanks everyone. We took her back and exchanged her for a different female. The thing that really made me think she was aggressive was the fact that she wouldn't let my other ram come out from behind the rock. Cross your fingers that this goes better otherwise we will nix them off the list completely.

    The hubby and I were starting to wonder about that possibility as well. We are pretty sure the one we got to replace is a female. It took both of us and three employees to look at the pictures of the one we kept and watch the one we picked out to conclude we now in fact have a male and a female.

    I will get pics of the new fish when she gets done drip acclimating. The ram that has been forced to hide behind the rock has been out front ever since swimming around all happy. I hope it stays that way!

    Hopefully you guys have it straightened out now, and can enjoy the rams instead of stressing over them!

    Nice! Glad you were able to isolate which one was a problem and that your other guy is happier now.

    Ok. These two are doing so much better. They stick really close to each other too.
