Mine hated higher temps as well, it seemed to prefer unheated tanks with high Nitrates which were summarily lowered to almost nothing. Great for Nitrate export.

In a softer CO2 tank I'd certainly recommend a Caridina species, like tigers or CRS. Our neos love hard water, very hard and breed exponentially. We have 8.2-8.4 out the tap and they love it. Going...
