Nice scape but poor fish choice neon tetra should be in schools of 6 or more and need bare minimum 20" long tank-they need more swim room. That size tank is like sticking a kid in a dog cage.. yeh it can more around a little but not nearly as much as it should be able to for its own health and happiness.

I can get that for a lot of fish, not a neon. Relatively speaking in size terms it would be more comparable to a kid in a average sized home not a dog cage.

Neon's tank size recommendations vary greatly depending on who you talk to and where you look. Many places recommend them in 5-10g tanks. Obviously no denying bigger is always better.
