Acquired: Fish / pet store

An excellent choice for beginners, the X-Ray Tetra grows to 1.5 inches. It is faster swimming than some of the other tetras. A varied diet, including some vegetable and meaty matter as well as standard flake, will also help improve health and colour. Although peaceful, like other tetras of similar shape, X-rays may on occasion nip at very fancy finned fish.
This fish is ideal for someone who has recently acquired a tank and is looking for a colourful and active fish to liven it up.
