Are green neon tetras same as neon tetras.

I recently saw some fish called green neon tetras at a lfs. Are they similar to neon tetras? I guess which is easier to take care of.

They are similar in needs but they are a different fish. Green Fire Neons have much more blue/green to their body and are smaller than Neons, Neons have less blue/green and a little more red and then Cardinals are largest of the three and have more red than blue/green so it's kind of like a scale!
