The Blue Diamond Neon Tetra is the bluest variety of this classic species, and we are offering superior specimens at a far lower price than competitors!

The Blue Diamond Neon Tetra (Paracheirodon innesi var. "Blue Diamond") is an excellent choice for the community aquarium, especially planted aquariums. This variant of the classic Neon Tetra is fairly new to the hobby and is not commonly available. It is distinctive for its higher level of blue coloration and the "diamond" marking between its forehead and dorsal fin. This is a very peaceful fish that is suitable for beginners and experts alike!

The Blue Diamond Neon Tetra typically occupies the top and middle level of the water column, although it can often be seen swimming and feeding in the middle and bottom levels as well. It is safe with other peaceful, small fish. Adult dwarf shrimp are generally safe as well, but the Blue Diamond Neon Tetra may prey on dwarf shrimp fry. Larger, peaceful invertebrates can also make good tankmates. The Blue Diamond Neon Tetra must be kept in schools of 6 or more. Since it is tank-raised, this fish is very adaptable, but its natural habitat contains soft, acidic water rich in tannins and leaf litter.  

While not a picky eater, the Blue Diamond Neon Tetra will thrive and remain very colorful on a varied diet of meaty foods. High-quality flake food, pellets, and frozen or freeze-dried meaty foods will all be readily accepted.
