The Cardinal Tetra brings delicate beauty to any home freshwater aquarium. It has a bright blue stripe contrasted by a lower red stripe that runs the entire length of its body. This coloration differs from its cousin, the Neon Tetra, which has a red stripe that runs only halfway down the body. These tetras make excellent community tank mates and for best results you should keep them in a school of 6 or more. A dark substrate and some dense plant cover combined with free swimming space will display this fish optimally. Lighting should always be dim as this fish will not show good coloration in brightly lit tanks.
