Neon tetras are a natural food for angels in the wild. The general rule is if a smaller fish can fit into the larger fish's mouth, it will get eaten. You could try introducing the neons and angels into the tank together as babies, but even if they grow up together, it still might happen, and this would be true for any smaller fish, not just the neons.

Good advice Gunnie! the only thing I can add is if your set on neons get the larger species of neons. I have Black neons () and Green Neons ()

I have bought my Angels while they were still small and they grew up with my Neons. They have never bothered my Neons. But if Angelfish are raised only with other Angelfish or with fish of their size, they may well eat smaller fish like Neons once they're put into a tank with Neons.

yeah, it was a bad idea, tiger barbs are notorious fin nippers, shouldn't have kept them with angels. never keep them with goldfish or guppies, if u want to keep them, keep 6 of them in a tank, it will reduce their fin nipping habit.

Being a noob didn't have anything with mom adding incompatible fish to your tank Maybe you can help her learn about fish as you learn.
