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?

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.
