  Neon Tetra (front view)

 

Thailand

When seen from the front the fluorescent eyes of Neon Tetra (fig.) seem to glow like small neon lights. Due to its attractive colours, which are reminiscent of the Thai national tricolour (thong trai rong - fig.), it is a very popular aquarium fish and, though originally from South America, it is bred on a large scale in Thai fish farms, for trade and export.
