"I have 3 neon tetras in a baby BioOrb. I found that it is necessary to change 20-30% of their water once a week. I use distilled water because I found tap water to be too harsh even with the water conditioner treatment. I feed them flaked food about 3 times a day except on the weekends when they don't receive any food. I've had them for almost 7 months and they appear fine. I learned to keep the room temperature a little warmer than I like it (about 69), otherwise they become sluggish and won't eat. I bought bloodworms (freeze dried) to see if they might want a little variety in their diet. I've only seen the snails eat the bloodworms. 2 usually go behind the large rock and 1 stays in front to watch me. The one usually just stares at me with the 2 blue eyes at around feeding time telling me it's time. I don't use the light that came with the BioOrb because Neons like it dark and spooky. "
