Glowlight Tetra


New Member
Well hello there,

So I am setting up a 20 gallon biotope for glowlights and I’m super pumped for this project.

Does anyone have any recommendations stocking wise for fish found in their natural environment?

Any recommendations for set up?

Hemigrammus erythrozonus, commonly known as the glowlight tetra,

is a small tropical shoaling fish from the Essequibo River, Guyana, South America. popular, community tank fish ,

It should be kept with similar sized, non-aggressive species ,

The water should be soft to slightly hard, d°GH of 6° to 15°, with a slightly acidic pH of 6.8, in the range 6.0 – 7.5. It prefers a temperature of 25 °C in the range 22° – 28° °C (72° – 82 °F). The hardiness of this fish allows it easily to adapt to harder water, though soft water is essential for captive breeding.

is an omnivore and in the aquarium eats small live, frozen and dry foods and flake foods. The feeding of vegetable matter is suggested to vary the diet.

other fish from the same river
Acanthocharax microlepis , Aphyocharax erythrurus (Flametail tetra) , Apistogramma steindachneri
