SKU: Cardinal Tetra Categories: ,


Cardinal Tetras (Paracheirodon axelrodi) are iconic freshwater fish prized for their striking appearance and peaceful nature. Native to the blackwater streams of South America, particularly the Amazon River basin, these tetras are a staple in the aquarium hobby. They are closely related to Neon Tetras but are distinguished by their larger size and more vibrant coloration.

Cardinal Tetras are characterized by their shimmering silver bodies adorned with vivid red and blue stripes. The bold red stripe runs horizontally from the middle of the body to the tail, while the iridescent blue stripe extends from the eye to the adipose fin. This combination of colors creates a visually stunning display, especially when kept in groups.
