Fire neon - The glowlight is a medium size tetra growing to 4 to 5 cm , notably larger than both neon tetras and cardinal tetras.


Garnet tetra - Breeding is difficult, as parents must be prevented from eating their own eggs, and require soft, acidic water.


Rummy-nose tetra - The rummy-nose Tetra is a torpedo-shaped fish, whose basal body colour is a translucent silvery colour suffused in some specimens with a greenish tint: iridescent green scales are frequently seen adorning the fish at the point where the fontanel meets the body.
