    Thumbs down Beep you, Neon Tetra Disease


    0 Not allowed!
    Sorry for the harsh beep, but it helped me get out my feelings on NTD. I think several of my Neons have the disease. I didn't make a confirmation diagnoses, but I don't know what else it could be. It has also infected more then one. This disease really makes me not want to have Neons anymore. I really just needed to vent.

    For those of you who want a SW tank and never have had one before or just starting out, read this blog entry from my blog on AC, it will give you a place to start.

    Just be aware that your Black Neons are at risk as well. All characins can catch that disease., it's not restriced to just P. innensi

    Neons are pretty sensitive to water conditions. Are you sure it couldn't be something other than neon tetra disease? Strange how cardinals are not affected with it and perhaps that might be a better way to go?

    I'll have to go the cardinal route if/when all my neons go. I don't plan to get more once, they pass on. At the moment, I can't look, since the lights are off. But I will try to describe. Certain ones have spots of a brownish color breaking up the red and blue stripes. Best I can describe without looking at the moment.

    Nope they can't. It is restricted to the Characin family. The only exception in the family is what the others above mentioned; cardinals.

    I lost all 15 of my neons in my 30g which were my only fish.... LFS said they'd replace them for free since i had just gotten a few from then not long before the symptoms showed up and wiped them all out.

    Cardinal can not get NTD. and this is why I do not get neons any more... Neons are such a weak fish any more there do not seem to be worth buying, and that is a shame.
    I like Pie.. and I love my Fish.. so whats your game?
