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.

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