Neon Tetras are beautiful aquarium fish that are happiest in a school. They are peaceful and attractive. Their striking blue, silver and red colouration make them a very popular fish. They are great in a peaceful community tank or featured in a large school.
Neons are similar to their cousins, Cardinal tetras. The difference between them lies mainly in the red stripe. In Neons, the colour extends from the middle of the body to the tail and in Cardinals, the red stripe runs all the way from nose to tail.
Neons are omnivores who enjoy Tropical Pellets, Tropical Flake or Micro Pellets. They can also be given Algae Wafers as a treat.
