Glass Bloodfin Tetras w/ Glass Catfish?
I have a berry ghost shrimp and have the tank all ready for the babies, but I have 2 Glass Catfish in there. I am thinking of transfering the Glass Catfish into my Glass Bloodfin Tetra tank. Will the tetras be okay with the catfish?
So a guy walks into a Pet Store
Guy: "I have a fungus on my drift wood!"
Pet Clerk: "Take two Amano Shrimp and call me next week."
I would not risk this combination. If you read the profile of each, you will see that the Glass Catfish is a sedate fish that will become nervous and stressed with "active" tankmates. And the Bloodfin Tetra profiles notes that this is an active fish that tends to nip fins of sedate fish. So a bad pairing.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
