The Neon Tetra is native to slow black or clear water streams of the Amazon Basin of South America. It has a half red stripe along the rear flank together with the full luminous blue stripe, unlike the related Cardinal Tetra which has a full red stripe. They grow only to 3-4cm long and are shoaling fish that hide among vegetation and the neon luminosity allows them to see one another.
