Neons are not being wild caught anymore. If they were, there would be no such
problems. The problem is that they are all breeded in SA asia and the fish 
farms pay little attention to the quality. They are weak because of the
inbreeding. You might be confusing them with cardinals, who are still mostly 
wild caught because they can't breed them without fading colors on such large
