The Green Neon Tetra is very similar to the more common Neon Tetra however unlike its cousins, the Green Neon Tetra is only found in blackwater habitats. This unique element to the fish makes them a great choice for anyone who is looking for a bit of colour in a blackwater aquarium. 

Ideally, a heavily planted aquarium with various branches and lots of leaf litter will provide a natural habitat which offers a lot of natural food sources. Leaf litter provides a home for tiny crustaceans and insects which makes up the core of the Green Neon Tetras diet. The addition of live foods like daphnia or bloodworm will ensure your fish have a healthy diet.

These fish are not bred commercially so all of the Green Neon Tetras in the hobby have been caught wild. There is no information available on breeding these little fish but as egg scatterers, it may be possible in a mature aquarium with lots of plants.

All our fish are quarantined on arrival for two weeks. During this time, they are treated for any possible diseases and given a complete health check  to make sure they are health, happy and eating well before being placed in our display aquariums, ready for sale.

Dead on Arrival (DOA) Policy: In the unfortunate event that your fish arrives dead, please follow these steps: Within 12 hours of the delivery, take clear, unopened bag pictures showing the deceased fish. Send these photographs and your order number to our customer service email at getfish@thefishroom.co.nz or to our Facebook page and we will then offer a refund or store credit for the cost of the fish. 

Two-Week Guarantee Policy: We stand behind the health and quality of our fish, which is why we offer a two-week guarantee starting from the day of delivery. If your fish dies within this time frame, adhere to the following procedure: Take clear photos of the deceased fish. Using a reliable test kit, document via a dated photo, water parameters (pH, ammonia, nitrate, nitrite levels). Please email us the photographs, water parameters, and order number to getfish@thefishroom.co.nz or our Facebook page. After reviewing your claim, if approved, we will issue a store credit for the cost of the fish. Our two-week guarantee does not cover fish deaths due to unsuitable water conditions, incompatible tank mates or “disasters” i.e. a heater overheating. We recommend thoroughly researching each fish species' needs before introducing them to your aquarium to prevent such situations. 

 Freight Charges: Please note that shipping or freight charges are non-refundable under all circumstances. We hope this guide makes our refund and guarantee process more understandable. If you have any questions or need further clarification, please get in touch with us at getfish@thefishroom.co.nz. We are always happy to assist. Thank you for choosing The Fish Room. Happy fish keeping!
