Caring for your Neon Tetra

I like to shoal with my own kind, in a group of at least five others. I like other kinds of fish as long as they’re a similar size to me (larger ones might gobble me up).

Fill my tank with lots of plants and spots to hide, as well as open spaces to swim.

I love protein-rich foods; crumble fish flake so that it’s small enough for my tiny mouth. King British Daphnia Treats are the perfect size and great for my digestion.
