The Neon Tetra has an iridescent blue body with a bright red tail. They create a beautiful splash of color in any aquarium, especially when kept in schools.
They prefer densely planted aquariums with plenty of hiding places and low lighting. To create its natural habitat driftwood and rocks should be added to the aquarium. They are very peaceful fish that should be kept with similarly non-aggressive fish of the same size.
The Neon Tetra will accept small foods such as brine shrimp, daphnia, freeze-dried bloodworms, tubifex, micro pellet food, and flake food.
