I currently have 1 female guppy with her 3 fry , I'm curious to know how many neon tetras I can have in my 15gal. I know they are a schooling fish . Thanks

I would do around 10. Just my personal choice. You could probably have a couple more, maybe bump it up to 12 or 13 if you want. Will the female be in there all by herself?

Well I plan on keeping her babies & her too. I already have 7 neons in the tank. I guess I could get 3 more to make it even

If she's pregnant, and you keep whatever babies don't get eaten by her or the neons, eventually you'll have still more babies. Just something to think about.
