|SearunSimpson||If it's a standard 33gl (footprint wise), then I would go with green neons, or better yet (in my opinion) Black Neons. I find a 33gl not quite long enough to fully appreciate Rummies, plus Rummies are way to ADHD for a tank that size, in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, I like Rum, ahem, I mean Rummies, but yeah, I wouldn't really go with them in a tank with that footprint.|

I think it's all in what you're looking for. Rummys are better schoolers... no question. Hardier too. Neons are prettier though (to me at least). I guess it's attractive vs neat.
BTW I also prefer Black Neons and Cardinals to Neons, but since the original topic was just between the two I didn't bring others into it. I also prefer Glow Lights... mostly because they're hardier, but I also think they're underrated in terms of looks.

Rummy nose = a pleasure to watch
Neons = booooriiiing!
Thats just my opinion. I guess cause neons are sissy fish that go bully up to easy. No fault of their own... they are mass bred, which leads them to be weak. But some times you can get some that are bullet proof. If you like the blueish/red colors... I recommend the Cardinal tetra, a far more attractive fish (again IMO). Or the green neon, not as much red but schools very nice unlike the regular neon.

|spoonbeak||MY rummy's have been making me angry, all they've been doing for the past 4 days is hide in the corner or back. Driving me crazy, as soon as the light goes out they're all over the place.. I dont know what to do.|

|9am53||I say rummy. I have cardinals, and love them, but whenever people come over and see my tank they say "oh those are neons" and I have to explain that they are cardinals, and they just glaze over. Since this has started happening I have vowed to never have neons|

I just got some GREEN neons and they are pretty neat. More blue, less red.
PS I had rummies for many years, awesome fish, they lived forever.

|2wheelsx2||I prefer black neons to both of them. But if I had to choose, Rummies....|
