Glowlight Tetra

Sale price£3.25


Glowlight tetras are like living jewels illuminating your tropical aquarium with their enchanting radiance. Native to South America, these small, schooling fish showcase a captivating combination of iridescent silver bodies and neon orange stripes, resembling streaks of vibrant sunlight beneath the water's surface. Their dazzling appearance adds a touch of brilliance to any aquatic setting.

Creating an optimal environment for glowlight tetras involves replicating their natural habitat. A densely planted tank with subdued lighting and dark substrate mirrors the shaded streams and rivers they inhabit. These sociable fish thrive in groups, so maintaining a school of at least six individuals ensures they feel secure and display their best colors.

Careful attention to water conditions is essential. Keep the temperature between 72-79°F (22-26°C) and maintain a slightly acidic to neutral pH level. Regular water changes and efficient filtration contribute to a healthy ecosystem.

Glowlight tetras are omnivores, readily accepting high-quality flake or pellet foods. Enhance their diet with occasional treats of live or frozen fare like brine shrimp or daphnia. With the right care and a well-designed aquarium, these luminous tetras will gracefully light up your tropical haven, creating a mesmerizing underwater spectacle.
