The Black Diamond Neon Tetra (Paracheirodon innesi var. “Black Diamond”) is an excellent choice for the community aquarium, especially planted aquariums. This variant of the classic Neon Tetra is fairly new to the hobby and is not commonly available. This is a very peaceful fish that is suitable for beginners and experts alike! They must be kept in schools of 6 or more. Since it is tank-raised, this fish is very adaptable, but its natural habitat contains soft, acidic water rich in tannins and leaf litter.
While not a picky eater, the Black Diamond Neon Tetra will thrive and remain very colorful on a varied diet of meaty foods. High-quality flake food, pellets, and frozen or freeze-dried meaty foods will all be readily accepted.
Please note that this is a black variant of the true Neon Tetra (Paracheirodon innesi), NOT the more common Black Neon Tetra (Hyphessobrycon herbertaxelrodi), which is an entirely different species.
Max size: up to 1.5″
