Had them for almost 6 months, and they seem to do fine.

Seem is different from reality. These are fish which need swimming space and proper schools to be completely healthy.

This is fact; now you know.

The thread can carry on.

Thanks, noted.
I'm here just to show my Spec, as this thread originally intended.

I'd feel negligent if I didn't tell you.

Don't let the naysayers stop you.

Yes, they will NOT school, but they will shoal.

If you listen to the advise of half these fish experts, anything below 40 gallons should only house shrimp or 1 betta.

If you had them six months, I am sure they are okay.

The whole nano tank subculture is going to be putting fish in tanks smaller than the experts would suggest; but the fish seem to do well. Don't worry about it.

If you are worried, buy a betta. My sister kept a betta for three years in a 1 gallon vase.

I am sure the neons are living longer than they would have in the wild.

If you feel guilty, buy some scarlet badis, but even there AqAdvisor suggests 10 gallons, even though scarlet badis are smaller in length than neons.

Here's my Spec. Set up for a few surprise/rescued RCS. There are 6 of them in there right now, but one is very berried.

Update. Waiting to get some new floaters, and then I am removing the last of the duckweed. I need to rearrange the clump of java ferns on driftwood in the middle and remove the algae. Can't really see the cherry shrimp, but there are so many in there. I feel there are new ones being born every other week.
