    It takes a lot to beat a big school of the same variety of Cardinals especially the Cardinals.

    That's very true, I think they are possibly my favourite fish.

    Over the years they were always the best to by compared to the common over bread Tetras.

    I was told by an importer they could breed the Cardinals as fast as the common Tetras and, this would lead to a poorer quality Cardinal being breed for the Aquarium trade.

    I don't think I've noticed any drop in quality over the years, sure I've seen the odd dodgy batch but that's true of pretty much every species.
    I suppose If breeders let the quality drop they'd be putting themselves out of business.

    Being an importer he always bought by the 1000s and always very young. He said by doing that he could raise them in a controlled and, a very healthy environment also because of that his survival rate was extremely high.

    There are plenty of newcomers to fish keeping to keep them in business as they would sell them world wide.
