Paracheirodon axelrodi (Cardinal Tetra)
One of the most beautiful aquarium fish which are commonly found in fish shops. A shoaling fish which should be kept in a group. A minimum of six fish is best and it will help to make the fish more at ease in the aquarium which in turn will help to bring out their vibrant colours.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
Very peaceful and active, making these fish an ideal addition to any community tank. They prefer soft and acidic water conditions, but will adapt to most water conditions and are in fact relatively hardy.
Sexing the fish can be difficult, but in the main the females will look a little larger and more rounded than males.
Feeding is straightforward, they will take most foods including flake, frozen brineshrimp and bloodworm.
Breeding is possible, but not easy. Keep the fish in a well planted tank which is dimly lit. The fish will scatter the eggs on the plants, after which the adults should be removed from the tank. The eggs should hatch within 24 hours and will be free swimming in around four days. Feed on infusoria and other appropriate fry foods.
