Neon Tetras fish for Sale. Learn about breeding, care and how to treat disease. These tiny fish are one of my favorites and enhance any aquarium. They fit well with other fish as long as the other fish isn't to big and look so gorgeous with their pretty colors as they like to swim in a group or school and look pretty cool. Get at least a dozen of them to make a great impact.
Don't put the Neon Tetra with fish that are much larger or aggressive. The tank that held my Neon Tetras also had guppies, one male Siamese Betta, (rescue these lovely fish from their tiny containers) swordfish, Mollies and Zebra's. The bottom feeders were catfish, eels and a frog. These fish all got along and I never had a problem with them hurting each other.
The Neon Tetra is a fresh water fish and come from South America countries like Columbia and Brazil. It is hard to tell the difference between the sexes but the male has a straight blue strip while the females are bent. Females are usually larger too. They live about 5 years in an aquarium but can live longer with better care.

They eat the standard tropical fish food but do better with the addition of shrimp, bloodworms and such that can be purchased dried or frozen. Don't ever feed live food as this may bring disease to your fish.
Breeding the Neon Tetra can be tricky. They need to be separated into their own tank with no light at first them the light is slowly increased. The water in the tank needs to be at a certain hardness and the tank and decorations sterilized before adding the fish. More research should be done before attempting breeding. There are some good books on this page that will explain everything.
The green and black Neon Tetras are actually a different type of fish. However they get along well and will form schools together.
Buy a fish and save a forest. I just read an article from "Discovery" magazine about how the natives from the along the Amazon River are catching these Neon Tetra fish to sell and make a living from it. During the fish season the river is packed with boats as they catch these tiny fish in small nets. Their isn't much chance that the river will run out of fish because these fish lay hundreds if not thousands of eggs to make up for the river losing 30 feet each year in the dry season.
During the dry season when the river lowers billions of these little fish die because they get caught in pools above the river's edge as the river level drops. In the wild these fish live about one year but in captivity they live closer to 3 years. So it is a win win situation for the fish and the ones catching them.
The other bonus is that the natives want to keep their livelihood and protect the forest along the river because this protects the river. So by adding some of these fish to your aquarium you can help save a forest.

Dear Neon Tetra Fish Fans,
I am writing to you in behalf of your Heavenly Father. He is seeking you like a lost sheep. You remember the Bible story? It is about a shepherd who has 100 sheep. But when he brings the sheep home one night, one is missing. He then leaves the 99 sheep and goes out into the wilderness until he finds that lost sheep.
In this parable the shepherd goes out to search for the one lost sheep-the very least that can be numbered. So if there had been but one lost soul, Christ would have died for that one. To read more click Lost Sheep
