    I have the API freshwater master kit, on the regular pH scale it says 7.6, when I test the High pH, it registers about 7.4 some I would assume somewhere in there.

    A bad run of fish is right!
    I guess I'll keep returning them if they die and wait till I get a strong one.

    Currently I've got a yellow guppy and 2 blonde delta guppies which seem to be fine with each other. Now I've got 5 neon tetras and going to replace the one which I got yesterday soon so I'll have a school of 6. I figure I'll wait a bit, like 2 weeks, before I add in 6 more tetras and then another few weeks before the cories. I'm using the drip accumulation method when adding them in and I need to do a water change today.

    Is there anything I can do to help ensure I don't have to keep making trips to the store?

    Actually I have always had better luck with neons doing a faster acclimation. Open the bag, put some of your tank water in, wait a few minutes and net them out of the bag.
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    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.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    I got 9 of, my 12 neons at Petsmart and I've never had a problem with them. I floated the bag for 15 minutes, netted them out and put them straight in the tank. (Noob acclimation method, I'm not recommending this.) The Petsmart i go to though is literally 3 from my house though, so the water was likely very similar.
