Does anyone keep lemon tetras? If so, do they stay colored you and how do you keep their color?

Seems like they’re always washed out and bland in videos I’ve seen but I would love them if they kept their yellow.

Thanks.

I keep a small school of 6 Lemon Tetras and 6 Black Skirt Tetras in a heavily planted 20 gallon long aquarium. The Lemons keep their color (it increases with age) with the white/black points becoming more dramatic with age... The eyes stay red as well. I like them. They will readily eat neocardinia shrimp unfortunately. LOL.

Great; that’s good to know. Thank you.
