Detailed Description:

Overview:

  • The Neon Tetra (Paracheirodon innesi) is a classic and beloved freshwater fish renowned for its stunning iridescent colors and peaceful demeanor.
  • Originating from the blackwater streams of South America, particularly the Amazon basin, Neon Tetras have been a favorite among aquarists for decades.

Appearance:

  • Neon Tetras are characterized by their striking iridescent blue and red coloration, which runs along the length of their body from nose to tail.
  • Their slender, elongated bodies and transparent fins create a mesmerizing display as they move gracefully through the water.
  • With their vibrant colors and delicate features, Neon Tetras add a touch of elegance and beauty to any aquarium.

Water Conditions:

  • Optimal water temperature: 70-80°F (21-27°C).
  • pH range: 6.0-7.5.
  • Water hardness: 1-10 dGH.
  • Maintain excellent water quality through efficient filtration and regular water changes to ensure the health and vitality of Neon Tetras.
  • Mimic their natural habitat by incorporating driftwood, dried leaves, and gentle water flow.

Tank Setup:

  • Neon Tetras thrive in a densely planted aquarium with plenty of open swimming space and subdued lighting.
  • Provide floating plants and dense vegetation to create cover and security for the fish.
  • Ensure the tank has a secure lid as Neon Tetras are known to be skilled jumpers, especially when startled.

Tank Mates:

  • Suitable tank mates include other small, peaceful fish species such as Rasboras, Corydoras Catfish, Dwarf Gouramis, and peaceful freshwater shrimp species.
  • Avoid keeping them with larger or aggressive fish species that may intimidate or harass the Neon Tetras.

Feeding Habit:

  • Neon Tetras are omnivores and accept a variety of foods, including high-quality flake food, micro pellets, and frozen or live foods such as bloodworms, brine shrimp, and daphnia.
  • Offer a varied diet to ensure nutritional diversity and promote optimal health and coloration.
  • Feed them small portions multiple times a day to prevent overeating and maintain water quality.

Care and Maintenance:

  • Regular maintenance is essential to ensure the well-being of Neon Tetras and maintain water quality.
  • Perform frequent water changes of 25% every week to remove waste and replenish essential nutrients.
  • Monitor water parameters using a reliable test kit and adjust as necessary to maintain stable conditions.
