Neon Tetra XL

Welcome to Aquaholics Aquarium Supplies, where you can explore the mesmerizing world of Neon Tetra fish. These stunning and vibrant creatures are a perfect addition to any aquarium enthusiast's collection. Let's dive into what makes Neon Tetras such an enchanting choice for both beginners and experienced aquarists.

Neon Tetras (Paracheirodon innesi) are native to the clear, slow-moving waters of South America, specifically found in the Amazon basin, including Peru, Colombia, and Brazil. They thrive in densely vegetated areas, where their neon colours create a beautiful contrast against the lush greenery.

Size and Growth: Neon Tetras are known for their small size, typically reaching around 3 to 4 centimetres (1.2 to 1.6 inches) in length when fully grown. Their petite stature makes them a perfect choice for smaller tanks and nano aquariums.

Tank Requirements: To provide a comfortable habitat for Neon Tetras, a tank with a minimum size of 20 litres (5.3 gallons) is recommended. They are schooling fish, so it's best to keep them in groups of at least six to eight individuals to reduce stress and showcase their natural behaviour.

Water Temperature: Maintaining the right water temperature is crucial for the well-being of Neon Tetras. They prefer slightly warmer waters, ideally between 24°C to 28°C (75°F to 82°F). Investing in a reliable aquarium heater will help you maintain a stable temperature.

Diet: Neon Tetras are omnivores, which means they enjoy a varied diet. High-quality flake food, micro-pellets, and live or frozen foods like brine shrimp and daphnia are excellent choices. Providing a diverse diet will keep them healthy and showcase their stunning colours.

Special Features: What sets Neon Tetras apart are their striking neon-blue vertical stripes that run from their nose to the base of their tail fin. These vibrant colours are more pronounced when they are kept in a stress-free and well-maintained environment. Their peaceful and gentle temperament makes them an ideal choice for community tanks.

Tank Mates and Water Parameters: Neon Tetras are peaceful and sociable fish, making them great tank mates for other small, non-aggressive species such as guppies, danios, and dwarf gouramis. They thrive in soft, slightly acidic water with a pH level ranging from 6.0 to 7.0. Regular water changes and proper filtration are essential to maintain these parameters.
