Is this a newly cycled tank? I've read from more than one source that neon tetras are pretty sensitive and need a mature tank that's been running for several months with good filtration. Not just zero ammonia and nitrites, but also bacteria free water column.

If it is a new tank, I'd probably use the method that Dave from aquariumscience.org uses. It's under the Cycling chapter, section titled "What I do". He claims you can get clear bacteria free water in 6 weeks using that method. It will cycle in about a week, but he continues for about 6 weeks. I've never done that, but I did use his suggestion to use Black Kow as innoculate and I cycled a tank in 9 days. Good luck!
