a dozen neon would be a good number to start. I buy them from petsmart only cuz their the only big chain in my area and their stock are somewhat ok. I find petland to be a bit more expensive.

Why neon tetra? why not Cardinals...or Green Tetra? My personal choice is Cardinals...Win carries them for $1/each. I would start with 10ish and go up to 50-60..assuming 20 gal long tank..
You must have good filter and regular weekly water change is needed to keep the herd happy..

Cheers!!!

I agree here, cardinals have the same colors as neons, and are a better choice IMO, but if you really like neons then go for it.

Are cardinal tetras (and tetras in general) safe to keep around shrimp fry?

Even adult shrimp aren't safe around tetras. Even if they appear to be at first, its only a matter of time before the tetras realize that shrimp are delicious.
