Their weight and length is weight: half a pound length:2-5 inches color: Blue,red and light green.
Habitat My animal lives mostly in aquariums. They really don’t have to make adaptions because they are mostly found in hot tropical places. They travel in schools of fish. They migrate.
FOOD They need smaller foods than most fishes as they have a throat with a comparatively small diameter. They are omnivorous, so they'll take live foods and standard foods for tropical community fishes. My fish is an omnivore.
Protection They really don’t have to protect themselves because they mostly live in aquariums, or they live up close to shore in hot places.
Characteristics They are born in eggs. Usually 10 to 20 eggs. The young are called Dwarf neon rainbow fish. A unique feature is they are very colorful. They are fascinating because they are the fourth smallest fish.
Endangered No my animal is not endangered. The reason is because if they do live in the ocean then they are close to shore, and most of them live in aquariums instead of the ocean.
Conclusion My personal statement is: I liked my fish. The thing I liked about my animal is the colors. The thing I didn’t like is it took forever to get all the info on it.
Some facts Their Latin name is Melanotaenia praecoy. Origin: New Guinea, Irian Jaya Life span: 3-5 years
