Compatible Tetra's with Neons
Looking to add another school of Tetra's. I currently have 7 neons, should I expand ther school? I'd like to add another school of a different Tetra which wouldn't come in conflict with the others ( such as nipping).

I do have one small school of neons 5, that happily live with a school of glo-lite. They previously were together with white skirt tetras. No problems at all.
I think that as long you do not mix them with vampire tetras you can put any small to medium size tetra with them.Luis
What fish would you like to be...???

I would suggest getting a bigger group of neons. Thats just my oppinion though I think one large group of one kind of fish looks better then 2 medium sized groups. they show more color and school better too.

I have Rummynose and Lemon Tetras in with my Neons. The Rummynose are wonderful little fish that look great in a small or large school.

i would not recommend either red eyes or colombian's both mine are nippy and there in groups of 5 or 6
i would get a mate for your German ram and get another 5 or 6 neonsThe difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits
