Cardinal Tetras and Neon Tetras are similar in appearance and are often confused with each other. However, there is one very easily identifiable difference. In the Cardinal Tetra, the red stripe on the lower half of the body extends the full length of the fish from the eye area to the tail. In the Neon Tetra, the red stripe starts at mid-body, roughly below the dorsal fin, and extends to the tail.

Cardinal Tetras have surpassed Neons in popularity and are in high demand in the aquarium trade. As a result, they are often priced a little more highly than their smaller and less brilliant cousins. Although they prefer soft acidic water, as the Neons do, Cardinals are more demanding, preferring a pH below 6 and a hardness level below 5 dGH. Adult Cardinals will reach a length of nearly 2 inches. Like Neons, they are best kept in schools of five or more.

宝莲灯鱼外形娇弱纤细,鱼体最长可达5厘米,在热带鱼种类中属于比较珍贵的品种。宝莲灯鱼的鱼体侧面较为扁平,呈现为纺锤形,鱼头和鱼尾部位较宽,鱼吻圆而钝。最引人夺目的地方是,鱼身上半部分能够看见一条鲜亮的蓝绿色带,下方的腹部位置能找到一块红色斑块,口眼较大,臀鳍向后延长,尾鳍呈现为交叉状。宝莲灯鱼全身上下闪耀着金属一般的光泽,在草缸内四处游动之时十分美丽,十分适合作为观赏鱼饲养在水草缸之内。

宝莲灯鱼之所以也被称为新红莲灯鱼,是为了方便和红绿灯鱼相互区别。在体型、习性以及彩色等方面,它们二者都十分相似难以区别,唯一可以区分的地方是,宝莲灯鱼的体形比红绿灯略大,贯穿鱼体的蓝色纵带色彩也比红绿彩灯鱼更加鲜亮妖艳,位于腹部的红色更是几乎掩盖了整个鱼体的下半身。这一点和红绿灯鱼有明显的不同,应注意区分。
