I've always loved serpae tetras. When healthy they become extraordinarily brilliant to look at.

yea right now all there fins are nipped and look like crap but they are the long fined so hopefully they all grow out good and stop pecking at my damn neon tetras fins...

but i love how they school really tight just like the rummy noses do, im planing on matching the number of serpea tetras with the number of neons

fyi i have 45 neons right now haha so the tank should be pretty well stocked

well losing 2 neons out of 45 could just be a product of a few getting harassed to death, since you mentioned that they were previously harassed too. not sure about the others unless you noticed some symptoms of death that could help?

Leave your pH alone.

IMHO, this tank is perfect for a bunch of Amazon swords or Hygrophilia corymbisa. Maybe add one E. Osiris for contrast. Red Tiger Lotus and/or several dwarf lilyis. Several dwarf sag clumps in midground. Blyxa japonica and/or E. tenellus to fill in the foreground. Couple of Water Sprites. And you are done: all easy and prolific plants. Add Rotala roundifolia, Rotala Bangladesh, some ambulia to taste.
