It is rumored that the first attempted introduction of Yellow Neon Tetras to the US was aboard the ill-fated air dirigible The Hindenburg. Since then, this fish has been introduced and has gained great favor with hobbyists. This fish looks especially great in schools of 12 or more. Black or dark gravel helps add to the dramatic effect. A peaceful fish, it is important to select aquarium citizens carefully, so that it does not get nipped at or eaten. With a maximum size of 1 to 1.5 inches, it can easily become the victim of bullying by more aggressive fish.
