The Lemon Tetra is a very easy to care for fish that is tolerant to almost any water parameters found in community aquariums. Like most small tetras, they feel safe in numbers and should be kept in a shoal of 6 or more. They are very peaceful and, providing their tank mates won’t eat them, they can be kept with anything.

Current Size – 3-3.5cm

Tanks Mates and Compatibility - Generally peaceful making it an ideal resident of the well-researched community aquarium.It’s perhaps best-maintained alongside similarly-sized characids, gasteropelecids, lebiasinids, callichthyid or loricariid catfishes, and non-predatory cichlids. Try to buy a mixed-sex group of at least 8-10 specimens, include other schooling fishes to provide security, and you’ll be rewarded with a more natural-looking spectacle.

Feeding – In aquaria ia diet of dried foods but like most fishes does best when offered a varied menu which in this case should also contain live and frozen chironomid larvae (bloodworm), mosquito larvae, DaphniaMoina, etc.
