The Glowlight Tetra glows when lighting conditions are right. This fish has a clear body with a bright neon red stripe running from the nose to the tail. The colorful, red stripe shows up best when the aquarium lights are dimmed.
This tetra will make a great addition to a planted aquarium, and the plants will provide hiding places for the fish. Rocks and driftwood also help replicate its natural habitat. It does best in slightly acidic water when the parameters are kept constant.
The Glowlight Tetra will accept small foods such as brine shrimp, daphnia, freeze-dried bloodworms, tubifex, micro pellet food, and flake food.
