I think this question is a little misleading. Cardinals would not be considered neons as much as a Green neon, Black neon and regular neon would be. That's like saying all blue and red fish are neons. No?

They are in the same genus Paracheirodon, or the true neon tetras. I don't mean the hobby names, I mean the actual species. It could've been much better worded though.

Thanks for the clarification I didn't realize the Neons had been reclassified or are no longer referred to as Hyphessobrycon innesi.

I never realised that they were in the genus Hyphessobrycon!

That's because I am old and have old books and information.
For example, in the book "Handbook of tropical aquarium fishes" copyright 1971, page 220, lists the neon as Hyphessobrycon innesi. In the Encyclopedia of aquarium fish, copyright 1974, it lists the neon as Hyphessobrycon (Paracheirodon ) innesi. I have no idea when "they" ( whomever "they" are ) dropped the Hyphessobrycon.

Hope this helps
