Yo-yo's can be a little more aggressive than some other loaches, such as Clowns. Whilst your Yo-yo's are small they will probably chase your Neons out of curiosity. But when the Yo-yo's get bigger, and with the Neons being such small peaceful fish, the loaches could become a real threat to them - particularly if kept in a smallish sized aquarium. Sometimes, faster shoaling fish such as Danios or even Barbs work better as dither fish for certain species of loach, and providing your loaches with plenty of space will help reduce the problem. You should also think seriously about purchasing at least one more Yo-yo. Two of them could spell trouble, as they will constantly pick at each other. Larger numbers will help to spread this aggression, and no one fish will bear the brunt of it all.
Hope this helps,

I wouldn't sweat it though. Leave them in. It'll be far more work taking them out then it is worth.
A year or so I lost almost all my "porkchops" in my zebra tank after being away for 10 days. I can't say what happened. I still have my zebras and they don't seem to have a taste for the neons. But then again I haven't been gone so long since that time.
