    I currently have a filtered and heated 20 gallon tank. It has 4 red wag platy and 2 of the danio glofish. I want to add some neon tetra to the tank. How many neon tetra can i add to my tank?

    Welcome to fishlore!

    Danios and neon tetras are schooling fish so you need to keep them in groups of 6+. In a 20 gallon tank you don't have rom for another mid dwelling school.

    I would do this
    7-8 glo danios or zebra danios OR 8-10 neon tetras
    4 platies
    6 panda cories
    Keep the temperature around 72f

    I'd do the 4 platies, 8 glofish danios (or just more zebra danios) and 8 panda cories.
