Cardinal Tetra (Paracheirodon axelrodi)

The Cardinal Tetra will add color and beauty to any community fish tank!  They do very well in planted tanks and get along with dwarf shrimp in many planted aquariums, creating a feeling of peace.

Though similar to their cousin, the Neon Tetra, they are bright blue stripe with a lower red stripe that runs the length of its body.

Size is about 0.5" - 0.75".

**Sold in a bundle option of 5 Fish, 10 Fish or 25 Fish**

    All fish were alive and healthy. Quickly became very active in the tank.

    Paul did a great job with the delivery. We coordinated around the winter storms and all tetras arrived alive. Good Job!!

    Fast Shipping!

    Posted by Unknown on 29th Jan 2021

    Fish were shipped overnight and arrived in less than 24 hours, 5 were alive out of six but I only paid for 5. The bodies are not red, but maybe that is a factor of sunlight?

    Cardinal tetra shipping assessment/summary

    Posted by Anthony Ross on 21st Jan 2021

    2 DOA out of 25 - very good ratio of success. Bag could’ve been a little bit bigger for 25 cardinals . Will order 25 more soon - if the price is still the same !? 5 stars is the rating for the service I received and thanks for the professionalism! Anthony Ross

    Beautiful fish

    Posted by Nelson Rivera on 9th Jan 2021

    I would have given this a 5 out of 5 but 2 of the 10 that I ordered didn't make the trip. The other 8 however are lively and add the exact color and feel that I was hoping for in my community tank. Keep up the great work PetZone!

    Bad luck

    Posted by R.E. on 10th Dec 2020

    They're sure beautiful but I've had some seriously bad luck with these; or i'm a terrible fish keeper. Either way, long term i've had less than 50% survival.

    The fish that survived are pretty, though.

    Beautiful fish!

    Posted by R.E. on 2nd Dec 2020

    I purchased several of these fish for my aquarium. They colored up immediately and are looking great.

    I had a shipping mishap the first round and had a few DOA which I was credited for, and the second batch were all very healthy and active without any problems.

    Beautiful fish.

    Cardinal Tetras

    Posted by Phong P. on 24th Nov 2020

    I ordered 5 cardinal tetras online for an in store pick up. When I brought it home they seemed a little thin and not as energetic like normal tetras. The first one died within the hour and the rest soon followed suit. I brought them back to the store and the guys replaced them. I ended up buying another five cardinal tetras. They are now enjoying their 29 gallon planted tank. Gorgeous little things!

    Ten Cardinal Tetras arrived and looked good.

    FedEx dropped the ball! Fish were on truck at 8:11 am, to be delivered by 10:30. They did not arrive until 1:45, the driver saying his truck broke down. Disappointed in them! Come morning I had eight left. They look great.
