I’ve noticed a growing trend in the aquarium hobby. Many people are looking for the mysterious “X Ray Fish”. This fish is known for its pleasant demeanor, hardiness, and most of all, its weird appearance! The xray fish is known by many names.
People call this fish…
- Prestilla Tetra
- Goldfinch Tetra
- Prestilla maxillaris
- Xray Tetra
- Signal Tetra
They are all the same fish!
This fish is called the xray fish because you can see through its skin! You can see the organs and skeletal system of this adorable little fish and because of that, people love it!
It is a wonderful starter fish. I highly suggest the xray fish. This fish prefers the following conditions in your tank:
- PH of 6-8
- A few buddies to school with (these are schooling fish)
- Eats most types of foods with no problem
- Should be kept with other community fish, it is non-aggressive!
