A unique fish for your tank. Always a conversation starter.
The Blind Cave Tetra is a very interesting fish from the physical point of view. It gets its name from its lack of eyes, a feature that makes it very special. The most interesting part is the babies hatch with fully developed eyes, which degenerate and are reabsorbed during the first few weeks of life.
If you worry your Blind Cave Tetras may not see the food in front of them, understand their olfactory senses are much stronger than other fish, as compensation.
Their taste buds are spread all across their heads to help them tell food apart from decor and tank mates.
Care Level: Easy
