Petrified Wood is a longtime favorite in natural décor for aquariums, terrariums, and bonsai tree arrangements.  This stone occurs in a huge variety of shapes and colors which can be arranged in infinite combinations.  Petrified Wood is not known to dramatically alter aquarium pH or hardness, but some claim that it can raise these parameters over time.  As with similar stones, this can easily be offset by regular water changes and the use of driftwood in the aquarium.  

We package all of our exotic stones with ample padding/protection during shipment.  However, we recommend rinsing any residual dust with non-chlorinated water before aquarium usage.

                      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.

                      What We Like About This Fish:

                      Iridescent red stripe that add bright bursts of color to any aquarium set-up

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

                      Safe with plants

                      Completely peaceful

                      Very hardy and adaptable

                      For the safety of our animals, we only ship live fish, crabs, and select other inverts exclusively via UPS 1 Day Air.  If your order contains this item, you will only see UPS 1 Day Air as a shipping option during checkout. 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. 

                      UPS 1 Day is a description of the duration of time a shipment will spend in transit once it has been shipped. This does not guarantee the package will be shipped the same or next day from which the order was placed.

                      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?
                      A: Glowlight Tetras do best with other small, peaceful fish. Ideal tank mates include Neon Tetras, Harlequin Rasboras, Corydoras Catfish, and small livebearers like Guppies or Mollies.

                      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.
