Water change & Temperature
Temperature about 24.5 degrees Celsius
Characteristics of the water levels of the Red neon:
Attitude of the Wild:
Soft acidic water
Total hardness, 1-4, 5-6 and pH values at about 25-28 degrees
Attitude of the offspring:
Also slightly harder water
Total hardness, to 15, pH levels to 7
Red neon are typical omnivores, accordingly constitutes also the lining together.
The Cardinal Tetra is, like most tetras, a predator and eats really alles.So illogical how this assertion sounds at first glance, really it is yet.
The staple diet of neon in the "Nature" consists of small crustaceans and insect larvae, so animal food, which is why the term "predator" certainly is true, albeit to a somewhat personal interpretation.
In the aquarium, he is quick to flake food as a substitute food, but you should always get live and frozen foods in addition.
(Frozen food and ornamental fish flakes will be my choice, and as water fleas as live food)
Mysis, Cyclops, brine shrimp, white mosquito larvae frozen food
Daphnia as live food, once a week
In addition to food
1-2 times a week and Tetra Min Tetra Pro Colour, for the armored catfish Tetra Pleco Multi wafer
Alternately 1 to 2 times a week is "Lent", this is selected irregular and contains no fixed day of fasting.
"Little Rio Negro"
The Rio Negro (Black River) is a water flow of around 28,400 m³ / s and a length of 2,253 kilometers (with Rio Uaupés 2400 km) after the Rio Madeira is the second largest tributary of the world. Its source area is located in the southwest of the highlands of Guyana. The Rio Negro flows for many kilometers, crossing the equator, in an east-southeasterly direction through Brazil and empties below Manaus in the Amazon.
The Rio Negro comes from the confluence of the two source rivers Rio Guainia which is regarded as the headwaters of the Río Negro since 1884, and the Rio Casiquiare teeing as Brazo Casiquiare from the northward flowing through Venezuela upper Orinoco and forms the most important Flußgabelung Earth.
In the upper reaches of the Rio Negro receives from the mountains of Guayana also clear water rivers. Below the confluence of the Rio Branco, the water is turbid and brownish.
The Rio Negro appear because of its high content of humic and fulvic acids black.
Blackwater are indeed highly colored, but transparent, because it contains no suspended particles. In the nutrient-poor waters almost no plants are growing, yet many dead plants get there and decompose.
After the confluence of the Rio Negro its black water can be distinguished even more than 30 kilometers from the milky-brown water of the Amazon.
The cardinal tetra (Paracheirodon axelrodi) is a freshwater ornamental fish belonging to the family of tetras He comes from South America.
The distribution ranges from Venezuela and Brazil to Colombia. It occurs in the Orinoco and Rio Negro and its tributaries. The Red Neon adheres preferably to shaded, darker spots along the shore. Red neon be up to five centimeters long and can be up to 10 years old. The families of the Neons are barely distinguishable, usually the females are slightly rounder than the males slim.
The Blue Neon (Paracheirodon simulans, Syn .: Hyphessobrycon simulans) is a freshwater ornamental fish belonging to the family of tetras. Blue Neons are 3 to 3.5 centimeters long and maximum of five years alt.Er comes from South America, from the Orinoco and Rio Negro.
The Blue Neon is the red neon and the neon tetra similar, the three species are not closely related. They differ in the number of Chromosonen.
