Green Neon Tetra

This combination makes the green coloration the most dominant and gives them their name. They have a greyish silver base with a long turquoise colored lateral strap on either side and usually possess red and green coloration on the head, caudal fin and also ventral region. These tetras have a torpedo-shaped body with golden scales. The patterns of the fish are generally caused by parasites and hence, are not the actual colorings of the fish. The intensity of the body color is actually influenced by the lighting of the water.
