i personally would of thought ti was abit to small for shoaling fish but perhaps maybe 6 neons might be happy in there... have u thought of any over fish u would / might like to go in there?

Akhtar,

I had ten Cardinal Tetras in a 15 litre / 3 UK gallon tank a while back before I knew any better. They must have been a bit cramped but I managed to keep them alive. They are now in a 20 gallon tank which is much better for them.

I agree with Aernympha that you might get away with 6 Neons but nothing else. You would need to make sure you have good filtration and keep a close eye on the water parameters.

sounds about right but you couldn't add anymore fish for certain, maybe try 4 and 2 other small fish

You could put six in there but they would all probably die. Neons are very delicate fish (meaning that they mysteriously die for no apparent reason). I would get something less delicate as a 3 gallon tank can have large shifts in temperature and water parameters very quickly.

That really is a very small tank for 6 Neons. Small tanks are always more difficult to keep stable than large ones. Few Guppies, couple of Platies, or a very spacious Betta tank though!
