How long do Neon Tetra eggs take to hatch?


Neon tetra eggs typically take around 24-36 hours to hatch. During this time, it is important to ensure that the water temperature and quality are optimal for the eggs to develop properly. The eggs should be kept in a separate breeding tank with clean, filtered water and a temperature of around 78-80°F.

Once the eggs hatch, the fry will initially feed on their yolk sacs before transitioning to small, live foods such as baby brine shrimp or microworms. It is important to provide adequate food and maintain good water quality to ensure the fry’s survival and growth.

Breeding neon tetras can be a rewarding experience for aquarium hobbyists, but it requires careful attention to detail and a willingness to invest time and effort into the process. With proper care and attention, neon tetra eggs can hatch successfully and produce healthy, vibrant fry.
