The Black Neon Tetra is a small fish that has a black belly with a gold stripe running horizontally down the middle of the fish. The upper body of the fish is greenish gold.

They are small peaceful fish that can be kept with most other community species. Black Neon Tetras are hardy, and can be kept easily by the beginning aquarist. They accept flake and small pelleted food, as well as frozen brine shrimp and bloodworms. They are midwater swimmers and prefer food that floats or slowly sinks.

Black Neon Tetras are schooling fish that should be kept in groups of 6 or more. Provide plenty of free swimming space, with some secluded areas using plants, driftwood and other decorations.

Black neons, Hardy Tetra, durable


Have kept various tetras and this type is 1 of the longest living, also very peaceful to other fishes. Highly recommend to get a school of at least 7 black neons for your aquarium.
