I picked up the last 2 neon tetras last night from my LFS to put in my empty snail tank. The smallest one was so small I had to cover the intake valve so he would not get sucked in.
Sadly the larger neon died just a little bit ago. The baby may not survive. I think they had come very stressed from the fish store. The clerk mentioned their PH and Nitrate can go up and down like crazy after I had the little guys rdy to go. I did acclimate them slowly. Poor babies seemed scared to death in their tank. I turned off their light hoping they would feel better and not be scared.
