    Do you have any pictures of them?

    Are they still eating, are they bloated?

    Are you aware that neon tetras are schooling fish and need to be in groups of 5-6+?

    Also "sucker fish" or common plecos can get to be 18in long! They need to live in 55gal min tank when they are very young but would need to constantly moved into bigger tanks, they are really best suited for ponds.

    What are you using to test the water?

    they are still eating and they don't look bloated , I had 5 neon tetra but lost 3 a month ago .. and I know how big my sucker fish could get ( he was not my idea ) a gift for my son from his dad .. I use a api test kit
