Nixies run on about 170V DC. If you are not used to that kind of Voltages, you can better start with numitron tubes. I agree that they are not as nice as nixies but they work on 3,5 to 4,5V so a lot safer than 170V.

woops i meant know

ok thanks for your tip. i have only ever worked with 27volts so i might start out on the numitron tubes. do you now of any good instructables that use them?

Your best option is to type "nixie" into the search box at the top-right of the page.

ive tryed that but i didn't get much but thanks for helping me. do you know of any good instructables that use them?
