Pick Three of the Following to Create Your Own Combo:


Amazon Frogbit:

  • Amazon Frogbit (Limnobium laevigatum) is a Central and South American floating plant that is commonly used in ponds, but it is also very useful in the aquarium. It is much larger than many other floating aquarium plants, so it is an excellent option for providing shade and cover for more reclusive species. Its leaves are very lily-like and will float at the water's surface, which can also be very useful for small semi-aquatic animals in terrariums and paludariums. This particular variety grows to 3-4 inches (7.5-10 cm) per pod.

PLEASE NOTE: We cannot ship Amazon Frogbit to California

Dwarf Water Lettuce:

  • Dwarf Water Lettuce (Pistia statiotes), also known as Water Cabbage, is a floating plant that is believed to be native to Africa, but has been introduced to many waterways throughout the world. While Dwarf Water Lettuce is relatively small compared other species of water lettuce, it is extremely easy to propagate and grows fast. It also quickly increases in size given the right care, which makes it an excellent option for providing shade and cover for more reclusive species. Its leaves are substantial and will float at the water's surface, which can also be very useful for small semi-aquatic animals in terrariums and paludariums. Dwarf Water Lettuce has remarkable denitrification and water clarification abilities, so it is very useful in helping to keep water clean.

PLEASE NOTE: We cannot ship this dwarf water lettuce to Alabama, California, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, or Wisconsin. If you attempt to add this item to your cart to a state listed above you will receive an error message at checkout that will prevent the order from being placed.

Due to its potential to become an invasive plant, this plant must never be introduced to US native waterways.

Red Root Floaters:

  • Red Root Floater (Phyllanthus fluitans) is a South American floating plant that is known and highly desired for its bright red roots and underside. Under high lighting, its leaves can turn completely red! This hardy plant propagates quickly and can provide shade to areas of the aquarium, which will encourage more reclusive species to come out of hiding. This is a truly beautiful and very beneficial plant for aquariums with gentle water flow.

Water Spangles:

  • Water Spangles (Salvinia minima) is a Central and South American floating plant that is known for its relatively large size and its dangling roots, which are a great feeding area and refuge for aquatic animal fry. This hardy plant propagates quickly and can provide shade to areas of the aquarium, which will encourage more reclusive species to come out of hiding. This is a truly beautiful and very beneficial plant for aquariums with gentle water flow.

     

    Floating Plant Care Guidelines:

    • Please see listings for each plant individually for best care of each plant, though they are all very similar.

    This colorful tetra is a true aquarium hobby classic!

    These little tetras are one of the more beautifully colored fish available in the freshwater aquarium hobby!  They have a silver body and feature a shimmering red/pink stripe throughout the middle of their body.  Their eye-catching coloration has made them one of the most popular fish for freshwater aquariums today.  They are great for beginners and experts alike, and they thrive in any well-established aquarium that meets their recommended water parameters.  These fish stay small, growing no larger than one to two inches, which makes them an excellent choice for small-sized tanks!

    Glowlight Tetras are very peaceful and make great additions to community aquariums.  However, they should only be kept in tanks with other non-aggressive fish that are similar in size.  They are a schooling fish, and their schools create a magnificent display of colors in motion that has to be seen to be believed!  These fish do best in densely planted aquariums with plenty of hiding places.  This can be achieved with rocks and caves, driftwood, and live plants (good ones include mosses or tall plants that will reach the middle level of the aquarium, such as green cabomba, moneywort, java ferns, etc.).  Since they are a schooling fish, they can really only thrive in groups, which is why we sell them in groups of 6 and 12.

    Glowlight Tetras spend most of their time within the middle and top levels of the aquarium.  These fish are not recommended for new tanks, as they may have problems in tanks that are not well-cycled.  It is important to acclimate Glowlight Tetras to a new tank slowly, because they can be sensitive to changes in water parameters.  They are known to be difficult to breed in captivity; the water conditions must be perfect for them to spawn.  Interestingly, the bright colors on these fish tend to become dimmer at night.  This is normal and does not indicate sickness or weakness in the tetras.

    Its small size makes it an ideal candidate for the nano aquarium

If other items are in your cart that can ship with  2 day or standard shipping options the only shipping method you can still select is UPS 1 Day Air.

    Shipping Schedule for this service

    UPS 1 Day: Monday through Thursday
     

    Current Handling Time:

    1-9 business days

    Here at Aquatic Arts, we consider the welfare of the live animals we are shipping to be of the foremost importance. This process is much more involved than simply creating a shipping label and affixing it to a box. Depending on the order, it takes from 4 to 7 people to complete this process properly. We check the weather conditions here where they fly out of the Indianapolis UPS facility and the destination for each shipment. We start early each morning and go through a multi-step process to have the day's shipments prepared in time for the UPS pickup. The volume of orders in our system also affects the processing time. Therefore our stated handling time is 1-9 business days. 

    Shipping Rate

    Pricing is by size of package needed to fill entire order and distance it must travel. It will be calculated at checkout.

     

     

    Q: What are the ideal tank mates for Glowlight Tetras?

    Q: How often should I feed Glowlight Tetras?
    A: Glowlight Tetras should be fed 1-2 times a day. Provide only as much food as they can consume in 2-3 minutes to avoid overfeeding and water quality issues.

    Q: What should I do if my Glowlight Tetras are not schooling?
    A: Ensure you have at least 6-12 Glowlight Tetras, as they are schooling fish and feel more secure in larger groups. Also, check if there are any stressors in the tank such as aggressive tank mates or poor water quality.

    Q: Can Glowlight Tetras live with shrimps and snails?
    A: Yes, Glowlight Tetras are generally safe with non-aggressive invertebrates like shrimps and snails. They add a nice dynamic to the aquarium and help with cleaning.

    Q: How can I tell the difference between male and female Glowlight Tetras?
    A: Males are usually slimmer and may have more intense coloring, especially during breeding times. Females tend to be rounder and slightly larger, particularly when carrying eggs.

    Q: What signs of illness should I watch for in Glowlight Tetras?
    A: Watch for changes in color, fin rot, spots, or unusual swimming behavior. Common illnesses include ich, fin rot, and swim bladder issues. Quarantine affected fish and treat the tank if necessary.

    Q: What lighting conditions do Glowlight Tetras prefer?
    A: Glowlight Tetras thrive in subdued lighting conditions, which mimic their natural habitat. Moderate lighting with plenty of plants for shade creates an ideal environment for them.
