Green Neon tetra looks very similar to the regular Neon Tetra but only reaches about 2 cm in size. They will do better when kept in a small school of 7 or more and in slightly acidic and soft water conditions. Green Neon Tetras are not seen in the trade as often as the regular neons or cardinal tetra. Hobbyists sometimes confuse all three species. They will do great in heavily planted aquariums.
