Tell me about Glowlight Tetra's
I seen Glowlights back when I researched Tetra's for my Tetra tank online but they looked quite 'dull' and I actually seen them live for the 1st time today and they are indeed very pretty fish.
Are they really naturally this vivid in coloration or is that yet another 'man made' fish?
Do they school well with others or are they somewhat aggressive/ fin nipping anything to worry about?
Ahh perfect. I will await a response too. However, I did read that their coloring is natural and not man-made. So that is good!
I believe they are indeed natural. No man made colors. They are the typical Tetra. Shoaling fish, peaceful, non fin nipping fish.
They just looked extremely orange-vivid today when I seen them I mean VERY.
I suppose thou I'd have to make a decision between them and the Cardinals; not sure I could add a group of both to the existing stock (8 Cory cats; 10 Rummy nose; 7 Empeor Tetra..so both groups on top of that I donno?!)
What now? Danio's are Cyprinidae Family; These Glolight are Characidae family....Now I am confused a lil :-)
There's Glo-Fish which are man made glowing danios. Then there's the glolight Tetra I am asking about......That's 2 different fish just so we're all on the same page here!?
I think Jason is thinking of Glo-fish. And they are nasty. Neon fish is, well, Spongebob-ish.
Glo-light/head & tailight Tetras are different than the Spongebob fish. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GloFish
I am keeping glowlight tetras at the moment and they are a peaceful tetra that's colors are really vivid over dark substrate and not too bright lighting. They are rather shy in my view, and frequent the lower regions of the aquarium. I would suspect a nicely planted tank with dark substrate, would make them feel quite comfortable and colors would be more vivd as well.
Their colors are natural .
I had a school of these guys a while back. They kind of remind of neons in general behavior. Mine were also jumpers. I had a few of them jump out of the bag during acclimation.
