Albino Cardinal Tetra – 10 pack


The Albino Cardinal Tetra (Paracheirodon axelrodi) is an uncommon variant of the Cardinal Tetra, one of the most popular schooling community fish.  It is very similar to the Cardinal Tetra in appearance but has a lighter red and blue coloration along with purple/pink eye.

The Albino Cardinal Tetra typically occupies the top and middle level of the water column, although it can often be seen swimming and feeding in the middle and bottom levels as well.   They are safe with other peaceful, small fish.  Adult dwarf shrimp are generally safe as well, but adult Albino Cardinal Tetras may eat small dwarf shrimp and their fry.  Larger, peaceful invertebrates can also make good tankmates.  Albino Cardinal Tetras must be kept in schools of 6 or more.  Since they are tank-raised, Albino Cardinal Tetras are fairly adaptable, but their natural habitat contains soft, acidic water rich in tannins and leaf litter.
