The Glowlight Tetra glows like a lamp when lighting conditions are just right. The colorful, neon red/orange stripe shows up best when the aquarium lights are dimmed. For maximum visual effect keep Glowlight Tetras in groups.
The Glowlight Tetra is a very popular and hardy freshwater tetra. It originally came from the clear water streams of South America. This fish has a clear body with the exception of its signature bright neon red stripe running from the nose into the tail. Glowlight Tetras are a great addition to any soft water community aquarium.
Glowlight Tetras add beauty to a planted aquarium; the plants, in turn, will provide hiding places for the fish. Rocks and driftwood also help to mirror its natural habitat. It thrives in slightly acidic water and will do best when water parameters are kept constant. The Glowlight Tetras are a schooling fish and are very interesting to watch in action when kept in odd numbers of five or more.
