A few species of tetra like the Congo Tetra tend to be more aggressive and are best kept in a species aquarium. Discuss stocking options with your local fish store and mention your concerns about compatibility before making any purchase decisions. An excellent, reasonably priced tetra to trial as your first tropical fish is the neon tetra. These are easily identifiable by their bright red and neon blue stripes. They are usually around $1 each and even less when purchased in a school.
The latest color, Galactic Purple Glofish Tetra are now available for sale!

We purchased 5 neon tetra, we put them in a shallow but medium size bowl, The bowl is brick red color, with fairy moss. The immediately began to prune the roots and made like a nest, they then slept in the nest at night, they are active, and without a filter, the are swimming and eating normal as far as I can…I took them to a ceramics exhibit, a car trip to and from the venue. They did fine. They have blended their color into the bowl, when I transferred into a pitcher to transport, I notices through the clear plastic that they were white and orange, when home, returned them to the bowl where the resumed their activity. I am hoping that the fairy moss is providing them the food and oxygen they need. I am also giving them very small bit of fish food. I will let you know how things go if anyone is interested, but what I wanted was a small water feature for the dining table, without a pump. The black skirt tetra is a common fish that is widely available for purchase.

Looking to add a new bright pet to the family? GloFish Galactic Purple Tetras are beautiful freshwater Tetra fish that glow under black lights – PetSmart - $12.99The Glofish is a genetically modified zebra danio that comes in several different fluorescent neon colors such as red, green, orange, blue and purple. You can now get other species such as glofish tetras as well. The Glofish was genetically modified with the purpose to detect environmental pollution. Scientists were able to inject a fluorescent protein gene (from marine organisms) into the zebra danio embryos to create the glofish. There are no dyes or color injections into this fish. Successive offspring get the gene passed down to them from parents. They are still working on developing a fish to only fluoresce when in the presence of pollution and a portion of glofish sales goes to the advancement of this research.12 inch Tetra Glo Fish Purple Moneywort Plant is uniquely designed to complement your fish, aquarium, and other decor with a brilliant neon color that pops.
