I really enjoyed watching our neons in the tank. They tend to school, so the more the merrier. The brilliant blue and red make them stand out, so they are easy to see.
Neons are very easy to take care of and are fairly hardy. They are not picky eaters. Like most fish they like place in the tank where they can hide out and rest, so it is a good idea to provide some plastic plants for them to get into, or a little cave or bridge they can swim through.
They don't seem to mind other fish, but, since they are small, they could end up food for larger more aggressive fish. Check online, or with your pet store for the best matches for neons. They are beautiful and very peaceful to watch.
