The long fin variety with the familiar highly iridescent body reaching 2-3 cm (0.8-1.2")
A peaceful shoaling fish that should be kept in groups of 6 or more, in smaller numbers they will be shy and nervous fish and if they are kept in groups of under four then they may stop swimming and go pale and die after a couple of days. They should not be kept with larger predatory fish such as Angelfish as the Neons may get eaten!
Will accept most foods including pellets and flake as well as live/frozen food such as brine shrimp and daphnia. Feed once or twice a day. Due to a natural fear of predators, this fish may be resistant to eating food from the water's surface. To overcome this hold your fish food underwater for a moment and release the food. As with all fish, you should only feed the fish what they can eat in 5 minutes.
Prefers a spacious tank with some hiding places and dense planting as well as open swimming space. Water temperature of 22 -26 °C (71.6-78.8°F) is ideal.
