neon tetra

  1. Fish
    G'day all, I seem to be having a unlucky streak these past few days. Today I noticed one of my neon tetras in my 15 gallon planted tank was hanging out by himself and on a closer look I saw it has a small white growth on its mouth, kind of making it look like it has a flat nose. A quick google...

    I have a 10 gallon tank that has been running since February 2020. We started out with 2 Leopard Guppy males. They have been our sole inhabitants for all this time. I am diligent with water testing and changes. All levels are standard and the tank has been very healthy. Temp and chemistry...

    Hello all, Long time lurker here. You have a great site and group here, and I've learned so much by reading the forums! I have a well planted (Amazon sword, java ferns, java moss, water wisteria, frogbit, water spangle, and more) 29 gallon tank, stocked with 7 neon tetras, 6 rummynose...

    Hey guys, I have been running my 15 gallon tank for 2-3 months now, and unfortunately the tank is now having an algae crisis. My setup is a 15 gallon std. tank with a marineland penguin 150 and a marineland penguin 100 (the little biowheel power filters). I cycled for 2 weeks before adding...

    My 15 has been cycling for a few weeks now. Water parameters look good, and I used filter media from my already-cycled tank. I plan to run the marineland penguin 150b in there, with 1 peppered Cory (it's what I already have), 3 panda corys, 2 rams, and 10 neons. According to the aqadvisor thing...

    I want to preface this entry by saying that I am complete noob, so please pardon any errors or omissions on my part. I want to say that I am highly impressed by the aquascapes that people in this community have created, so much so that I was compelled to try this out myself. I was thinking...
  7. General Planted Tank Discussion
    A week and a half ago I added a small school of 8 neons to my newly cycled and heavily planted 10 gallon. Today the smallest of them is missing which is not surprising, but kind of sad because although it was half the size of the rest it was starting to eat really well. Anyway, I can't find its...
  8. Planted Nano Tanks
    So I've had a 5 gallon tank for about 6 months that were housing neon tetras and an otocinclus til about a week ago. Unfortunately, last year I lost all my tank inhabitants - the rasboras, some shrimp and an endler to a power outage. The heat went out for a week as it does nearly every year, and...

    Hello everyone, For the reasons stated in the title thread I am not having a good morning.... :crying: I've had an 16 gallon biorb that I initially set up August 2015. It's filled with low-light plants and has been home to two honey gouramis, seven neon tetras, and five amano shrimp since...

    Hi! I currently have a 20 gallon long tank with a dwarf hairgrass carpet that experienced hell of an algae attack, specifically only hair algae. The only thing in this tank is one neon tetra. I have not put food in this tank for months. What the hell does it eat? Has it survived off of the DHG...
  12. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    The ad basically said it. Just yesterday i added 5 neon tetras into my planted tank. The tank has been established for 3 to 4 months now, and has about 7 cherry shrimp. Before the neons the shrimp where swimming around eating whatever they can find. I added the neons in the evening and this...

    I seemed to have bought some infected Neon Tetras as my NTs have been acting strange and randomly dying despite near perfect water parameters. Last night one of my Rosy Tetras randomly died too. Other than sitting back and letting the strong survive is there anything else I can do? How do I...

    One of my new neon tetras isn't looking to good. It tends to separate itself from the rest. Usually hanging around the top part of my 20g tall swimming back and forth, and every now and then goes down near the bottom not really moving much and hiding in the driftwood. It's also looking...

    Hi, I'm new here. I was wondering how many Neon Tetras could I add to a 20 gallon long community tank. This tank already has 4 albino corys in it and has quite a few plants. It's not fully cycled yet, so I won't be adding the tetras for a while. Also I'm planning on adding a betta to it as...

    Hi everyone, He's been in a quarantine tank since early September. I had a big fish die-off period while I was away and asked my mother to take care of my fish. I don't know what killed the other guys (4 otos & 4-5 other neons) off as I never saw any bodies (eek). At first I added aquarium...
