Hello all,

So one fish that has always stood out to me every time I go into the LFS is Glowlight tetras,
Hemigrammus erythrozonus. Love the way they look and the idea of a large school in a dark, natural biotope aquarium sounds amazing.

I am in possession of a 20 gallon tall, with filter, light, heater etc. I wanted to ask for help with the aquascape, what kind of plants, wood, rocks, substrate would help bring out the natural beauty of the tetras?
Likewise, what natural tank mates really bring them out too?

Ill be documenting the set up when I start it up, probably after I get the substrate at least.

Well, for most fish black substrate and black background brings color out the most.

I would siggest any kid of setup, but lots of cover, like dense plants or lots of wood to swim around.

Dimmer lighting would help too.
