    More than likely they are die injected albino white skirts which are fin nippers. I didn't think they did that to the poor fish anymore.

    Tank size?
    If you mean artificially dyed parambassis ranga, no, they are not known for being fin nippers.
    However, I don't recommend supporting the cruel practice of artificially dying fish.

    If you mean the painted Glass Fish, I didn't think they did those anymore. They actually were painted, not just dyed, as were albino Redfin Sharks. The paint eventually peeled off, if the fish didn't die first. And those are not Tetras, Glass Fish are actually closer related to Perches.
