Males are often slimmer and smaller in size.:) That's all you needed to know when distinguishing the sexes of both of your tetras.:)

Another couple things you can look for, most tetras, the male's anal fin has a slight hook to it. Also, on glo-lights in any case, the males sometimes get a white stripe on the leading edge of their dorsal and anal fins (really quite striking. Perhaps my favorite thing about these fish.)
