The Mexican tetra or Blind Cave Fish (Astyanax mexicanus) is a freshwater fish of the characin family (family Characidae) of order Characiformes.[1] [2] The type species of its genus, it is native to the Nearctic ecozone, originating in the lower Rio Grande and the Neueces and Pecos Rivers in Texas as well as the central and eastern parts of Mexico.

Growing to a maximum overall length of 12 cm (4.7 in), the Mexican tetra is of typical characin shape, with unremarkable, drab coloration. Its blind cave form, however, is notable for having no eyes and being albino, that is, completely devoid of pigmentation; it has a pinkish-white color to its body.

This fish is reasonably popular among aquarists. This is especially true of the blind cave form.

A. mexicanus is a peaceful species that spends most of its time in the mid-level of the water above the rocky and sandy bottoms of pools and backwaters of creeks and rivers of its native environment. Coming from a subtropical climate, it prefers water with 6.0–7.8 pH, a hardness of up to 30 dGH, and a temperature range of 20 to 25 °C (68 to 77 °F). In the winter it migrates to warmer waters. Its natural diet consists of crustaceans, insects, and annelids, although in captivity it is omnivorous.



No one knows how or why. It's unfortunate really, he was going to tell you all about the wondrous sonar capabilities of the magnificent blind cave tetra. Death comes ripping, I'll tell you that much. Comes like a robber in the night. Life is short.

Why did he Die?

I already told you, nobody knows. When I visited the scene, I was told by police that he was in a "bizarre gardening accident". I don't know what that means, but the poor chump had so much to do. It's a shame when a young brilliant mind like that is just taken away from us.

What About This Article?

I don't know. I suppose if he had a son (he was 17 and still a virgin, what a pity) that he would continue his father's work with the Blind Cave Tetras. I'd love to, but I'm not an expert on that particular species. I'm only an expert on Bolivian Ram Cichlids and broken beer bottles.

Has There Been an Investigation?

Yes, and it's turned up nothing.
