And look! It has grown wings! It must be close to maturing.


Tetra Dragons are often found in large groups. They are very social both with their own species and with others. Tetra Dragons are very active and change locations quite frequently. Males defend small parts of territory within the groups but major conflicts rarely occur. Tetra Dragons prefer territory with lots of natural hiding places and can be skittish.

Additional information[]

Tetra Dragons Extra Info

Habitat: Tetra dragons live on the coasts and in the jungle, preferring more humid climates. They need habitats with easy access to hiding places.

Diet: While Tetra dragons do eat some vegetation, the majority of their diet consists of fish and small rodents. If a Tetra Dragon’s diet isn’t satisfactory for their needs, their colors will fade.

Mating: Tetra dragons mate for life in the wild, though in captivity it is possible to to match them with multiple mates.

Wild Behavior: Tetra dragons have a poisonous bite that they use as a defense mechanism. In the wild, they are somewhat more independent than their tame counterparts.

Tame Behavior and keeping: Tame Tetra dragons do not make affectionate companions. While they are very dependent on others of their own kind, they can be standoffish around humans.

Hatchling behavior: Hatchlings tend to be clingy and need constant companionship. If you do not earn their trust they will be skittish around you. Hatchlings are very active an often get themselves in trouble.

Magic: Tetra dragons breath fire but that is about the extent of their magical abilities.

Meta: The Tetra Dragon was a personal nostalgia project. I wanted to create a dragon that I could imagine being released when I first joined. The colors are based on neon tetra fish - my favorite fish from my aquarium growing up. Hope you enjoy them!
