I have a pregnant Neon Tetra in a community tank that contains Silver-tip tetras who seem to be a bit territorial..should I move her out to a smaller tank on her own?..and if so,what's the best way to furnish the tank?

You cant move her out on her own otherwise the egss wont get fertilized, you'd have to move the whole school, and have to make sure the parents dont eat the eggs, you may have to have some plants like java moss on the bottom i'm not sure. Never bred them. Supposed to be very hard to and extremely hard to raise fry. Also I think the tank has to be dark, like dont turn the lights or something because the eggs are light sensitive or something like that.

Hopefully someone else will know , if not do a google search.

Thanks J-Man..I've taken your advice and shifted the rest of the Neon school over to her tank..maybe some soft light and a little Barry White in the background to set the mood?..lol..seriously though,thanks.

How do you recognize when a neon tetra is pregnant? Because some of my neons are really "fat" - does that mean they may be pregnant?
