CRS/tigers are a completely different animal and require vastly different parameters
Neos have a tendency to thrive anywhere but amazonia could push pH into the 5 range.....which is possible for neos....but for some that may come from 8 pH could be detrimental.

Plus I feel like it's a waste to use it on neo's. Just an economical view from a college kid xD
