TheNeon Tetra is a shimmering blue with a blazing red tail. Although not recommended for new tanks, these fish are splendid additions to any community tank. As a schooling fish it does best when housed in groups of five or more of the same species in a tank with several hiding spots. Often confused with the Cardinal Tetra, theNeon Tetra has a red stripe that ends halfway from the nose of the fish, where the Cardinal has a longer red stripe. Slow acclimation is highly recommended for these fish as they are sensitive to changes in their water quality.
