The Green Neon Tetra is a great fish from South America. It originates from streams throughout the jungle where the water is stained brown from all the fallen leaves and wood. These fish will thrive in black water conditions. Although, they are very hardy and will accept a wide range of parameters.
The Green Neon Tetra is identical to the Cardinal tetra but with green coloration. They are omnivores in nature and will accept a high quality flake diet or Northfin premium foods.
The scientific name for the Green Neon Tetra is Paracheirodon simulans.
We feed our Green Neon Tetras a mix of Northfin Community and Veggie. They also get an occasional treat of frozen foods such as daphnia, cyclopods and baby brine shrimp.
Our Tank Parameters
I have a classroom tank. My students have really enjoyed watching them grow. They love the color as the fish are schooling.
All the Green Neons I ordered arrived alive and they are all still alive. I love them! They add such a nice flash of color in my aquarium.
I ordered 7 green neon tetras and received 8. All arrived alive and are still doing well.
Ordered 15 green neon tetras and received a couple of extras. All alive and look great! I got a good laugh out of the swedish fish in the bottom of the package! I will be ordering again from Flip Aquatics for sure.
All the green neon tetras arrived healthy and are doing great in my aquarium! This is my second fish purchase from Flip Aquatics and both times they have sent healthy fish that have acclimated well. It’s very refreshing to have a source of fish that have been treated well!
