I know the thought is to keep cardinals w. discus. But I too have had great success with neons. I keep my water right at 81-82 degrees, which might be a little low for discuss, but seems to be a good temp for all the plants, neons, and discuss. Plants would probably like the temp a little lower.
Anyway, I have only lost 2 of the neons from a batch of 25 I put in back in Feb in a 46 gallon. That is with 4 adult and 1 stunted discuss. I originally had just 2 discuss, and they would fight all the time so I got some more. Then I discovered that I had too much stock and was cleaning my canister- eheim 2236- way more than everybody else had too.
Now I have a 75 gallon and added a 2217, and guess what? I want more neons.
This never ends.
