    Sometimes it takes a couple of days for fish to get comfortable in a new tank.
    Once they settle in they will be fine.

    As long as the neons are eating when it sinks to the bottom you are fine.

    It is common that they are finiky when you first add fish to the tank. Give them time to get acclimated to their surroundings. If they are eating when the food starts to fall, then they'll be fine. It wouldn't be suprising if they didn't eat at all actually. Fish can go for a week without eating and be fine, so your guys will be ok. When I added some neons to my discus tank to keep the cycle while I get the water ready for the Discus, they were doing the same thing. Now they fly to the top when it's feeding time. No worries!

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of your car; Oversteer is when you hit with the rear. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, and torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    Most of the tetras that I have owned always feed in the middle of the aquarium, as that is normally where they are most comfortable. They like to hang in the middle part of the tank. As long as they are eating, they should be fine. Must be nice to see a school of ten of them in your tank. Enjoy!
