Cardinal Tetra – $ 3 each when you buy 10

Stunning quality Caridnal Tetra FIsh, are a must have for a beautiful Amazon Tropical Aquarium Tank

The full name for this Tetra is the Paracheirodon axelrodi Tetra, though you can also refer to them simply as the Cardinal Tetra. The Cardinal Tetra is typically wild caught, though you can find some that are captive raised nowadays. These fish are harder to raise in an aquarium setting and the retail price is reflected in this element.

The Cardinal Tetra is larger than the Neon Tetras and features a blue and red stripe that runs from the head to the tail. They have a unique look and are often the more visually appealing of the two Tetras. Though don’t be fooled! From a distance, both fish do look similar and are hard to tell apart.

Stores with good ethics are usually torn about taking them from the wild. In most stores, the common price is$6per fish.

Again, it is important that you take the responsibility to stock the fish with the correct amount to make a school or not to keep them at all. The best way to keep these fish is to honor their nature and provide them their safety in numbers. So a school of 10 as a minimum is recommended. A compatible tank mate would be Ember Tetra.
