Glowlight Tetra

Glowlight Tetra

By Gary Bolton


Family: Characidae

Species: Hemigrammus erythrozonus

Size: 5cm (2 inch)

Diet: Omnivorous

Tank levels: All

Habitat: Rivers in Guyana

Remarks: These small fish prefer a well-planted aquarium and soft, acid water for breeding. They will eat their eggs.

Comments: The upper and lower halves of the peach-coloured yet translucent Glowlight Tetra are divided by a glowing red-gold line. It starts on the snout and ends at the caudal fin. It has to said that these are one of the best looking tetras in the family. Stunning to look at and very easy to keep indeed. These are an ideal starter fish for the novice aquarium fish-keeper, just starting out for the first time.


This fish comes from the “Tropical Fish” family species of fish.
