Black Neon Tetra (Hyphessobrycon herbertaxelrodi)



Offering Hyphessobrycon herbertaxelrodi (Black Neon Tetra).

Growing to approximately 1.25 inches, the black neon tetra from tributaries in Brazil is a peaceful fish recognised by its light blue upper striped neon colouration, with a black stripe lower body. As a neon tetra, its size is slightly larger than its cousins with females of the species having a deeper body. They will accept a wide variety of foods including flake, pellet, dried, frozen and/or live, a balanced diet going a long way to maintaining their health and vibrancy. They are very peaceful tank inhabitants, and do well with other tetras or species of a similar nature. Avoid large predatory, aggressive and boisterous fish such as cichlids.
