March 2015 Program (3/5/15 @ 7:30pm) –
“Characins – That’s Tetras for Linda in Rio!”:
The Neon Tetra is still one of the most desired fish in the hobby. Neons and many other small schooling fish belong to a group called Characins or tetras. Although they become food for many larger predators, they possess numerous traits and attributes that help them survive and which endear them to aquarists all over the world. Founding RAS member Todd Wenzel has collected neons and cardinals in the wild and will talk in March about this fascinating species of fish. We’ll learn about their pluses and minuses, their feeding, breeding, care, and more. We hope you can join us!
