Paracheirodon innesi
Neon tetra
breeding notes

BREEDING: Soft acidic water is necessary. This is a typical egg scatterer and so spawning over marbles is appropriate. Good conditioning is required to bring this species to spawning condition, but this is easily achieved with livefoods such as worms, artemia and daphnia.

Have you bred Paracheirodon innesi? Why not fill in a breeding questionaire?

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Low light plants Java moss, Java fern, and several of the Anubias species all do fine in low-light conditions. That is not to say that they do not thrive with stronger lighting, but in an aquarium with a lot of floating plants, or one with timid fish that prefer a dimmer tank, these plants are very useful indeed. All are epiphytes; that is to say they need not be planted, and can be attached to stones, bogwood or just left free floating
