The Leucistic Albino Black Neon Tetra is a stunning and rare variant of the popular Black Neon Tetra, known for its unique coloration and peaceful temperament.

Description:

The Leucistic Albino Black Neon Tetra (Hyphessobrycon herbertaxelrodi) is a striking freshwater fish that boasts a delicate, pale coloration due to its leucistic and albino traits. This fish is a tank-bred variant, ensuring hardiness and adaptability in home aquariums. With its peaceful nature and schooling behavior, the Leucistic Albino Black Neon Tetra is an excellent addition to any community tank.

This tetra typically swims in the middle levels of the water column and thrives in well-planted aquariums. Its unique coloration, combined with a soft, ambient light, can create a mesmerizing display. The Leucistic Albino Black Neon Tetra is best kept in schools of 6 or more to showcase their natural behavior and enhance their vibrant presence.

Aquascaping:

Leucistic Albino Black Neon Tetras are perfect for aquascaped tanks. Their unique coloration contrasts beautifully with lush green plants and dark substrates. Consider using plants like Java Moss, Anubias Nana, Dwarf Hairgrass, and Water Sprite to create a vibrant environment. Floating plants such as Water Lettuce or Red Root Floater provide cover and enhance their natural habitat, promoting their best coloration and behavior.

Shrimp Compatible:

Leucistic Albino Black Neon Tetras are generally peaceful and can coexist with larger, peaceful invertebrates. However, they may prey on small shrimp. Ensure plenty of hiding spaces for shrimp to minimize risk and maintain a harmonious tank environment.

Leucistic Albino Black Neon Tetras are omnivorous and thrive on a varied diet. High-quality flake food, micro pellets, and frozen or live foods such as brine shrimp and daphnia will be readily accepted. A varied diet helps maintain their vibrant color and overall health.

Botanicals:

Incorporating botanicals such as Indian Almond Leaves, Catappa Bark, and Alder Cones can enrich the aquarium environment for Leucistic Albino Black Neon Tetras.

They also provide additional hiding spots and grazing areas, promoting natural behavior and enhancing the overall health of your fish.

Shipping Schedule for this service

UPS 1 Day: Monday through Thursday
 

Current Handling Time:

1-9 business days

Here at Aquatic Arts, we consider the welfare of the live animals we are shipping to be of the foremost importance. This process is much more involved than simply creating a shipping label and affixing it to a box. Depending on the order, it takes from 4 to 7 people to complete this process properly. We check the weather conditions here where they fly out of the Indianapolis UPS facility and the destination for each shipment. We start early each morning and go through a multi-step process to have the day's shipments prepared in time for the UPS pickup. The volume of orders in our system also affects the processing time. Therefore our stated handling time is 1-9 business days. 

Shipping Rate

Pricing is by size of package needed to fill entire order and distance it must travel. It will be calculated at checkout.
