I would give them some more time. I have 2 in my tank and they are out and about all the time.
Thanks for the advice guys. Probably gonna do a couple of GBR. Haven't decided on the neons for sure but i'm considering it. My little school of 5 oto cats are pretty cool to watch swim together, I might just add a couple more of them instead, although some color would be nice with the neons.
watch them after the lghts go out, they do the classic happy dance that most catfish/loaches do at night and its pretty fun to watchI'll probably go the neon tetra route, although my 5 oto cats love schooling around in the evening. Problem is they don't do that all the time, half the time they're on the glass.
