Most local stores get all their fish from the same supplier, it's possible that it was just a bad batch. I would wait a few months and try it again.

you have a number of fish in the tank that are not very good tankmates..serpaes, beunos aries, red tail shark, angelfish and pearl gouramis will definitely go after and kill the neons....i would suggest that you research species that you might want to keep together....

Black patches? That's not good. Yes.. avoid neons for a few months.

Yeah, I did a search on black patches on fish. Hope this helps.
