  • 100% Live Arrival Guarantee.
  • Tank Setup: Provide a well-planted aquarium with plenty of hiding spots and open swimming areas. A tank size of at least 10 gallons is suitable for a school of six tetras.
  • Water Parameters: Maintain stable water conditions with a temperature range of 72-78°F (22-26°C) and a pH level between 6.0-7.0. Tetras are sensitive to fluctuations, so regular water testing and maintenance are essential.
  • Tank Mates: Yellow Neon Tetras are peaceful community fish and thrive when kept in schools of six or more. Compatible tank mates include other small, peaceful species like rasboras, danios, and small catfish.
  • Feeding: Offer a varied diet consisting of high-quality flake or pellet food supplemented with occasional treats of frozen or live foods such as bloodworms, brine shrimp, or daphnia. Feed small amounts multiple times a day to mimic their natural feeding behavior.
  • Behavior: Yellow Neon Tetras are active swimmers and enjoy exploring their environment. They may display schooling behavior, especially when they feel safe and comfortable in their surroundings.
  • Water Quality: Perform regular water changes of 20-30% every 1-2 weeks to maintain water quality and remove accumulated waste and toxins.
  • Compatibility: Avoid keeping Yellow Neon Tetras with aggressive or larger species that may bully or outcompete them for food. Also, avoid keeping them with fin-nipping species.
