Fish encyclopedia: Neon tetra

Neon tetra is a freshwater fish of the characin family.
Although they are one of the most popular freshwater aquarium fishes chosen by fish lovers, but they are definitely not an easy species to rear! (I indirectly killed at least 5 before having them save with me!)
The living condition of Neon tetra species must be:
-Temperature of between 20 and 26°C
-pH level 6.0 to 7.8 (Best is to get yourself a test kit to test the aquarium water once a week)
- Living together with at least five neons as they are timid and small sized. In their actual habitat, they normal swim in schools of neons. If they are living alone with other tropical fishes/aggressive fishes, they will die due to stress, hide behind the plants, refuse to eat, restless or rather try ways to jump of out the tank to commit suicide.
h as the rummy-nose tetra, cardinal tetra, and glowlight tetra, and other community fish that live well in an ideal tetra water condition.

DONT MISTAKE THEM AS CARDINAL TETRA!!

Feeding time:

Neon tetras are omnivores and will accept most flake foods, if sufficiently small, but should also have some small foods such as brine shrimp, daphnia, freeze-dried bloodworms, tubifex, which can be stuck to the side of the aquarium, and micropellet food.
Breeding:
The male (lower) is slender, and the blue line is straighter. The female (higher)is rounder, producing a bent blue line.
Diseases:
This is one of the most common disease that neon tetras will have. Freshwater Ich, Scientific term: Ichthyophthirius
In the early stages of the disease, fish are likely to flash and rub against objects because of the irritation. At a later, advanced stage they will become lethargic and spend most of their time sitting on the bottom.
The causative agent of white spot disease is ciliate and protozoan. This critter goes under the thin upper layers of fishes skin, gills and fins. These irritations cause the host to produce extra body slime, showin the visible white spots we identify with ich. In massive infestations, large sections of the upper layers of skin are sloughed off and the gill filaments become anemic and necrotic... ultimately appearing yellow to gray and slimy.
