Neon Tetra help

2068 Views 9 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Complexity
I introduced 6 Neon Tetras 2 days ago. However, they are not acting right. They are starting to look disoriented when they swim. :eek: They swim with no direction and sometimes in a corkscrew type pattern. After, they look exhausted and settle on the bottom of the tank not moving :(. I am a newbie to freshwater tanks and need help. Thanks!

Are they in a QT tank? They should be to prevent the spread of disease. Sounds like they are diseased and will most likely die. Sorry to give you bad news. I just lost most of the new neons I bought.
