Neon fish aquarium

maintenance, care, compatibility

The aquarium fish neon blue or ordinary (lat. Paracheirodon innesi) has long been known and very popular. His appearance in 1930, he created a sensation and did not lose popular until our days.

A flock of blue neons in an aquarium creates a fascinating look that can not leave indifferent. Perhaps, beauty with neon, can not argue any other fish from tetr, nor similar black neon, nor cardinal, nor erythrosonus. And besides beauty, nature gave neons a more peaceful disposition and high adaptability, that is, he did not need any special care.

These factors made him so popular.

This small tetra is an active schooling fish. They feel most comfortable in a flock of 6 individuals, it is in it that the brightest colors are revealed.

Neons are very peaceful and desirable inhabitants of common aquariums, but they need to be maintained only with medium-sized and equally peaceful fish. Small size and peaceful disposition, bad helpers against predatory fish!

Best of all, blue neons look in densely planted aquariums with dark soil. You can also add snags to the aquarium to create the look most similar to the one in which they live in nature. The water should be soft, slightly acidic, fresh and clean.

Neons live about 3-4 years under good conditions in the aquarium.

In the right conditions and with good care, aquarium neon fish are fairly disease resistant. But, nevertheless, like all fish, they can get sick, even there is a disease of aquarium fish, called neon disease or plytiphorosis.

It is expressed in blanching the color of the fish and further death, because, unfortunately, it is not treated.

Neon get on well in the home pond with such aquarium fish: Pecillia (guppies, swordtails, mollies, placiums), speckled catfish, panda, tetra, danio rheo, labo, rastar, minors, gourami, iris, pulcheras, minors, hyacinths, sweaters, laboratories, rasomes, minors, gourami, iris, pulcheras, minors, marines, sweaters, minors, gourami, iris, pulcheras, minors, and fish. Consider compatibility with some fish in more detail.

See how well the scalar and neons get along in one aquarium.

Somiki corridor are excellent neighbors for small haracin ones, live together in the bottom layers of the aquarium, and collect remnants of uneaten food. The corridors are innocuous fish, also small and peaceful, they love to watch their neighbors without harming them.

Rasbory – can make an excellent company neon. Among them: the actual rasbory, boraras, microassemblies and trigonustigma, some of them belong to the family Karpovye.

Fishes of the Family Petsilievye (guppies, molly, sword-bearers, petsilia) – peacefully cohabit with haracin. Swordtails also have small body size, but males may be excessively active.

It should be borne in mind that more than two swordtail males sometimes pursue smaller neighbors, especially during the spawning period. With insufficient feeding, in the cramped, small place for swimming, the swordtails become unbearable.

So that these fish do not terrorize small neons, the aquarium should be spacious, with a sufficient number of plants and shelters.


Neons are poorly compatible with such fish:

  1. Large catfish, cichlids, barbs, astronotus, cockerels, koi carps – those who live in cool water, or have a predatory, aggressive behavior.
  2. Goldfish – they live in cool water, and are aggressive towards bright fish and their offspring.
  3. Angelfish – can live with neons only under the condition that they all grew up with the age of young animals. But neon-stranger scalar will be perceived as food. Also during the mating season, the scalar will be aggressively inclined towards everyone, including these small fish.

Order, family: carps, haracinovye.

Comfortable water temperature: 20 – 24 ° C.

Ph: 5.5 – 8.

Aggressiveness: not aggressive 0%.

Compatibility: non-aggressive, peaceful fishes (neons, tetras, sword-bearers, petsyli, ornatus, pulchera, lanterns).

Useful tips: Popular, beautiful fish – I recommend.

Natural areola habitats – reservoirs of Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay.

Neon is one of the most popular and famous fish. Bright, brilliant, nimble fish.

Little – males up to 4 cm, females up to 5 cm. In length. Neon schooling fish, it is best to keep them in a spacious aquarium of 50 liters in a large group of 10 pieces.

The more neons, the more beautiful your tank will “spill over”.

Conditions for keeping black neon descended from the conditions for ordinary neon. Comfortable water parameters for them: temp. 20 – 24 ° С, dН 0-30 and рН 5.5 – 8. When setting up an aquarium and planting a plant, one should keep in mind the free space for swimming of neons.

It should be remembered that the higher the temperature of the water in the aquarium, the more rapidly the neons age. At high temperatures, they can grow old by 1.5 years; at low temperatures, they live for 3–4 years.

Neon compatible with all the peaceful fish. It is not necessary to plant them with large fish and even more so with “predators”, although neons and nimble fish, they sleep at night, and their neon glow attracts non-sleeping aggressors.

Neons are omnivores: eat and live, and dry food and substitutes. Like many aquarium fish love live food. The peculiarity of neons in feeding is that they do not take feed from the bottom.

Therefore it is worth feeding them in small portions.

Reproduction of black neon is not so difficult., but requires knowledge, patience and perseverance. Sexual differences in neon: females are larger and longer than males by 0.5 cm.

For breeding black neons need a rectangular aquarium with a volume of 20-35 liters. At the same time, the water level in the spawner should be no more than 30 centimeters.

Comfortable parameters of water for spawning: dH 2.5-30, pH 6-6.5, temp. 24 ° C.

Water is recommended to defend (thawed, distilled).

Spawning aquarium carefully washed. At the bottom put a separate grid or another.

Aquarium obscure the sides and exclude the ingress of direct light.

Before spawning, black neon producers are not fed. At the same time young females with full tummy and active males are selected. They are usually planted in pairs.

On 2-3 2-3 day spawning lasts 1.5-2 hours. The female spawns about 100-500 eggs.

IMMEDIATELY AFTER UNATER, parents are deposited, otherwise the calf may be eaten.

At the beginning of the day, the larvae hatch from the eggs. The first day they are almost not mobile and hang in the input. Somewhere on the 4th day they begin to swim.

Malkov from this period should be fed feed pounded to dust a little bit. Also add lighting gradually.

Full coverage can be given only after full maturation.

The fry themselves are gray in color, with transverse dark stripes passing through the body. Young black neon grows very quickly.

At about the 3rd week, neonchikas have a shiny and black stripes, they also get the color of the eyes. By the fifth week, the fry of black neon are completely similar to adult individuals.

From this point on they can be kept in the general aquarium.

Young black neon susceptible to neon disease – Plysthophoresis. In case of illness, sick youngsters are killed. For the rest are monitored.

The reason for this is the incurability of neon disease.

Feeding aquarium fish must be correct: balanced, diverse. This fundamental rule is the key to successful keeping of any fish, be it guppies or astronotuses.

Article “How and how much to feed aquarium fish” talks in detail about this, it outlines the basic principles of the diet and feeding regime of fish.

In this article, we note the most important thing – feeding fish should not be monotonous; both dry and live food should be included in the diet. In addition, you need to take into account the gastronomic preferences of a particular fish and, depending on this, include in its diet ration either with the highest protein content or vice versa with vegetable ingredients.

Popular and popular feed for fish, of course, are dry food. For example, hourly and everywhere can be found on the aquarium shelves of food company “Tetra” – the leader of the Russian market, in fact, the range of feeds of this company is striking. In the “gastronomic arsenal” of Tetra are included as individual feeds for a certain type of fish: for goldfish, for cichlids, for loricarids, guppies, labyrinths, arovan, discus, etc.

Also, Tetra has developed specialized foods, for example, for enhancing color, fortified or for feeding fry. Detailed information on all Tetra feeds, you can find on the official website of the company – here.

It should be noted that when buying any dry food, you should pay attention to the date of its production and shelf life, try not to buy food by weight, and also keep the food in a closed state – this will help avoid the development of pathogenic flora in it.

It is a dwarf, the smallest of the neon family. The maximum length of the fish is 1.5 centimeters. A golden line stretches across the body.

The body of the fish is olive-gray.

Golden neons – strong, nimble, gregarious and peaceful fish. Neighbors can be any “unkind” fish, for example, all tetras.

These neons do not like bright lighting, because of the fish there is stress, so the aquarium lighting should be muted.

Comfortable parameters of water for the content: dH up to 15 °, pH 5.8-7.5, temperature 20-24 ° С.

The sexual maturity of gold neons occurs in six months. For breeding enough 2-liter jars. First, the producers “chase” each other, and by the morning of the next day spawning occurs.

The maximum number of eggs that the female throws out is 80 pieces. Eggs do not tolerate light, so immediately after spawning, the aquarium (jar) is tightly shadowed. The incubation period for caviar ripening is 1.5 days.

And after three days the young golden neon begins to swim.

Like all neons, the color of the fry begins to appear only on the third week.

The lifespan of gold neons does not exceed 4 years and depends on the temperature of the aquarium water.

ALL ABOUT NEONAH: history, content, types and features of breeding.

Neons are very beautiful small fish that will adorn any aquarium. Named so for the bright blue iridescent strip running along the body.

There are several types of these fish: blue – ordinary, red and black. They all get along well in aquariums and delight the eye.

The content of neon in the aquarium usually does not cause much difficulty. These fishes feel well in tanks even of small size, as they are small in themselves.

The temperature of the water in the aquarium for neons is acceptable in the range from 18 to 28 ° C, but it is best to keep them at 20–24 ° C, as in too warm water, neons can quickly age. So if you ask the question: “Why do neons die in an aquarium?”, Then the most likely reason lies precisely in the elevated water temperature.

It is also impossible to keep neons in the same aquarium with aggressive, predatory fish, for example, cichlids, because sooner or later they will be eaten. These are schooling fish, so if you want to extend the life of neons for as long as possible in your aquarium, purchase them not in pairs, but in small flocks of 5-6 individuals.

Under favorable conditions, neons can live with you for up to 4–5 years.

It should also be remembered that neons love fairly soft water and a lot of plants in which to hide. Aquariums with a large number of these algae are closest to the natural habitat of neon.

What to feed the neon in the aquarium, you can decide for yourself, as these fish are not too sensitive to food. However, you should not choose too large food, as neon can choke.
