Neon Tetra Parameters

tuggythetugboat

Hello, I'm planning on picking up some neon tetras for my 7 Gallon tank. Since they are a schooling fish, would around 6 be good. I'm planning on adding 2-3 Otocinclus aswell. My water stays around 68-70 degrees and my PH goes from 6.6 - 7.4 since I have CO2. Any suggestions?

7 gallons is to small unfortunately they need 20 minimum

My only suggestion would be a heater that can keep the temp a bit higher above borderline, and exchange the Otocynclus with Nerite snails. Otos like company, snails don't care. Just a thought.

Okay thank you I'll have to find a nano heater and think about adding some snails instead.

Do they really need a heater if my tank is a constant 68-72 even during cold days. I know that in their natural environment they can sustain cold winters where the average temperature stays much lower than this.

Oh really, I've seen many other planted nano aquascapes with them. I guess I'll have to look into another fish. Thank you
