This is like buying a kitten or a puppy, that will change as it
grows and matures.
We stock and ship fish that are the ideal size to ship. Not so
small that they will not do well when shipped. Yet not so big
that they will have trouble adjusting to a new home.
The fish in almost all of our pictures were young fish like the
ones we ship that we raised up, and you can too!

The above pictures show Neon Tetras and Rasboras in our
facilities. We keep them in bare aquariums with filters but no gravel. We acclimate them for several days,
sometimes as long as 10 days, before they have recovered, are eating well, and ready to be shipped.
Glowlight Tetras and Black Phantom Tetras are also small, mild tempered Tetras, whose care is similar to Neon Tetras. Harlequin Rasboras are not Tetras but are very good tank

These are all schooling fish that live best in a school with their own species. Here is a list of fish that will do well with Neon Tetras: Glowlight Tetras, Black Phantom Tetra, and Harlequin Rasboras. Click here

reason we have divided the Tetras into two groups called the Smaller Tetras and the Bigger Tetras. Click here for more about the Bigger Tetras.
Quite often we get letters saying that some fish stores recommend keeping Tiger Barbs with Neons, but this certainly will not work, and the Neons will almost always be
