At least six neon tetras should be kept together in one tank. Neon tetras are a schooling species, so you should keep a minimum of six to ten neon tetras together in one tank. Neon tetras will feel uncomfortable and get stressed if you keep too few of them together.

Smaller tetras, like neons and cardinals, are very popular fish for planted aquariums as they are small, colorful, and school together. These fish make great pets for first time fish keepers as they tend to be rather hardy.

Given their origin in South America, it is not surprising in the least that Neon Tetras require warmer water to thrive. The ideal Neon Tetra temperature for survival is between 22.2 24.4 degrees Celsius.

Do tetras like light? Lighting Requirements. Like other tropical fish, tetras require the lights to be on in their tanks for 12 to 14 hours each day. This will help them to maintain a proper circadian rhythm. It's best to put your lights on a timer so that your fish can settle into a routine.

TetraFish

Feed the tetras anywhere from two to four times a day, using the amount you measured previously to dictate how much food they will eat in a day. In the wild, neons are foragers and opportunistic feeders. The multiple feedings mimic their natural feeding behaviors.
