R.I.P my Neon School.

Today I found 8 of my 10 Neon Tetras floating, thankfully I have 2 left. This is the longest I've ever been able to keep Neons alive, 8 months. They all died of unknown causes, probably sudden heart attacks due to over - farm raising. Neons just aren't very hardy any more, its really too bad. I know once the 2 remaining pass on, I'm never getting Neons again. I've heard and read that Cardinal Tetras are much hardier, as of they're wild cuaght and not too many are farm-raised and hopefully they never will be. You know its kinda like Dogs, for example the Golden Retreiver is one of the most popular Dogs around. But due to inbreeding and puppy farms, they can have hip problems, leg problems, sudden heart failure and ect. With fish like Swordtails and Neons, they've been so inbred that they've become basically genetic trash. I say we form a boycott against over - raised fish!
