An ideal beginners fish.  The Glowlight Tetra is robust and happily has a range of other species it will cohabit with.  Ideally recommended for the beginner Aquarist.




Originally from the Essequibo River in Guyana although almost all species available today are tank bred.Growth Size 5 cm 


Glowlight Tetras are a shoaling species, and are best kept in large numbers. For best results we recommend keeping at least 6 in a shoal - the more the happier they will be.

Ideally slightly acidic water conditions are provided between 6.5pH - 7pH however they will happily live in conditions ranging up to pH of 7.5 or higher. Temperatures should range between 24-26°C.
Glowlight Tetra should be fed a variety of flake, frozen, freeze dried and live foods for a varied diet.  Being omnivores they will happily accept a wide range of foods. Glowlight Tetra are peaceful community fish and are generally accepeted by a wide range of tank mates. Please see the compatability chart below for more information. Females will exhibit a much deeper body, especially when carrying eggs. Can happily be bred in captivity, however care must be taken with eggs and fry as no parental care is provided.
