A neon tetra in aquarium

I occasionally visit pet shops which sell ornamental fish, in case I visit, I always see that the stores provide tetra neon (Paracheirodon innesi).

Super market such as Wall mart, in its garden section or section of pet foods for cat and dogs, we can find fish for aquarium, include neon tetra.

There are many species of ornamental fish, price could be from US$ 1 to US$ 25. Some species of fish are:

- Neon tetra
- Platy
- Kissing gouramy
- Fancy guppy
- Zebra danio
- Swordtail
- Guppies
- Oscar
- Discus
- Bettas

What make me wonder is that I could find Neon tetra in every pet shops for ornamental fish or any shops which sell ornamental fish.

The question then, Why Neon Tetra Fish? is Good For Aquarium?

Based on reading, neon tetra is the most popular ornamental fish not only in the USA, but also world wide. The reasons are:

- Reasonable price
- Easy to take care, thus good for beginner
- Colorful or pretty

Tetra neon in natural habitat

Peru or Latin America is natural habitat of Neon tetra. The fish is easy to keep in an aquarium. Around 20 fish may live in a small aquarium.

In nature, neon tetra has life span of 10 years, but 5 years in aquarium. Size around 1 inch (2.54 cm). Fish eat any flake foods.

Do you have an aquarium? What fish you keep in your aquarium?

  1. That’s interesting that they live longer in the wild—I’d think they’d become dinner for a larger fish.

  9. I had a wonderful aquarium at work. It belonged to my office, but I'm the one who took care of it so I considered it mine. No room for one at home.

  14. This Xmas the grandkids gave my husband a large goldfish. It was in a small bowl and he felt it was lonely so he when to the pet store and bought home another one. It turns out goldfish are pretty dirty so now he has them in a 10 gallon aquarium and they brought him 3 zebra Danios and 2 snails for
    FAther's Day! The pet store said they woud be compatible. These fish look so pretty. I'll have to check out if they will all get along. My little granddaughter won 2 small goldfish the other week at her daycare fair. She wanted to put them in the aquarium and when we did they went after the big goldfish eating their tails so they went back to their bowl! LOL!
