edit:  I didn’t realize this was so old.  Did you ever get them breeding?



I agree woth the temp being too high.  What is your pH, GH/KH?  Are they molting ok?  Is it a shrimp only tank?  Any IAL or alder cones?  Bacter AE?  I just got some today but shrimp peeps swear by it as far as encouraging breeding.  If you get some, don’t follow the dosing directions, do about 1/4 or just use a toothpick.  Neos aren’t nearly as picky as caridina but they still need to be in a certain parameter range.
