little fishies, part 4

Onwards to the other little school of fish in my tank.

Name: Neon tetra

I have a little school of 8. I initially bought 6, and they were happily darting around for about 2 weeks and then suddenly one disappeared (I’ve never found it. LIkely eaten by now). And then not long after that one died. So I could only see 4.

And 4 neons are not happy neons. The bigger ones started to get very nippy and the little runt of the lot was just hiding all the time.

So after more water tests I took the plunge and bought another 4, and since then they’ve been getting along much better.

Like the harleys, they are fast and usually trying to photograph them just ends up getting a streak of blue and red. Unlike the harleys, they tend not to school as nicely. It’s quite rare for me to see them in formation or even in a group, therefor it is also a lot more difficult to count them.

They’re quite cute and give the tank a little splash of colour.
