The Neon Tetra is a river-based fish which was introduced as a breed exclusive to Animal Crossing: City Folk. They are among the smallest fish in the entire game, having even been said to be the smallest in the entire series so far.


[edit] How to Catch

As the smallest fish in the Animal Crossing franchise so far, the Neon Tetra can prove to be quite slippery thanks to it's size. After a maximum of five nibbles on your bobber, make sure you reel in with the A button as quickly and carefully as possible in order to catch this little guy. Obviously due to their diminutive and vulnerable size, the Neon Tetra are native to the river and can only be found in such areas.

That metallic blue body! Hoo, that crimson tail! That pristine white belly! ...Now, THIS is what I call a tropical fish! No wonder this fish has the word "neon" in its name, eh wot? One of these should liven up the museum nicely!

[edit] Real Life

In real life, the Neon Tetra is native to rivers located in the Amazon, Brazil, and Columbia. They are common choices for pet tank fish, which can be commonly foundin all pet stores across North America!
