I have only one gold neon tetra, and have on back order more. But both LFS's seem to be having difficulty obtaining any more. My question -- since the gold neon is just a color variant of regular neons, would it be okay if I get regular neons so that he can have his own shoal? Will they treat him differently because of his coloration? I just got 6 Porkchop Rasbora, and he seems to be sticking with them, not freaking out. He loves the 12g. So, should I wait out the weeks until more arrive, or get regular neons to go with him. I don't think I have room for 6 of each in the tank. I'm going to be adding another YoYo Loach as soon as it arrives, company for my one YoYo who is 3 inches. Also in the tank is one of my 3 inch male bristlenose and one remaining Norman's Lampeyes. The tank is sparsely planted at this point. PS, I'm not having great luck with my lampeyes. One choked on a micropellet, just slightly too large for him, and two got tangled in my floating hornwort. I think when my last one is gone, I won't get any more. They seem to be way too delicate, even though I am very gentle with the whole tank.
