Neon Tetra

Introducing the Neon Tetra - A Striking and Popular Schooling Fish!

The Neon Tetra is undoubtedly one of the most beloved schooling fish in the aquarium hobby. Its vibrant blue and red colors make a captivating display in any tank. As a stunning addition to aquariums, they create a striking contrast against planted tanks and dark substrates. Their beauty and ease of care make them an ideal choice for any aquarist.

For optimal well-being, we recommend keeping Neon Tetras in schools of 5 or more. By providing a comfortable group environment, they thrive and exhibit their natural behaviors, enhancing the visual appeal of your aquarium.

Native to the streams of South America, the Neon Tetra thrives in environments that mimic its natural habitat. Including rock work, plants, and driftwood in the aquarium helps recreate their preferred setting, ensuring their comfort and overall health.

While Neon Tetras coexist peacefully with many tank mates, we advise against keeping them with shrimp colonies. Neon Tetras have a tendency to eat baby shrimp and may disturb adult shrimp. To maintain a harmonious tank, it's best to keep them in a separate setup.

Nourishing our Neon Tetras is a delight. We provide them with a balanced diet consisting of frozen foods, including daphnia, baby brine, cyclops, and bloodworms. This varied menu ensures their nutritional needs are met, promoting their vitality and natural vibrancy.

Quality neons! These guys arrived alive and were super cute little young neon tetras. They help me get through my workday on my desk.

Quality Fish!

I ordered 20 neons and received 3 extras. They colored up nicely in about an hour after arrival and spent 2 weeks in my quarantine tank and were then moved to the large community tank. They've been in there for 5 days now and all are still alive and have grown. I have never had this type of fish live for more than a week before, so it is amazing to me that all of these are healthy and thriving. Flip Aquatics does an amazing job shipping and selling healthy fish and I will always buy from them as a first choice.
