Is it a glolight tera or a glow light tetra? Rereading the title its a glowlight tetra which are white skirt tetras. They need atleast a 20 gallon tank and a school of 6+. What fish do you have and what size tank?

Pink neon glowfish tetra. Glofish tetras are smaller with an orange line the length of them.

Tetra Fish


Looks identical to bottom right photo. My wife had it 3 years or so before we got married almost 3 years ago. Saved it from a 3 gallon tank. Lol

The one that says "More poor fish injected with dye "Looking to add a new bright pet to the family? GloFish Galactic Purple"" below it?* That one's a glo fish. They are skirt tetras.

What tanksize is this?
How many of the skirt tetras/glofish do you have?

(*Glofish are actually genetically modified, not dyed but that's not the point)

I know what they are, and how they've done to these fish. I do my research. It's been in a 135gal with my 7-8inch fahaka. Currently it's in a 30. I wouldn't dare buy one of these fish. I stated I basically inherited it's well being from my wife.

There is nothing wrong with buying the GMO fish, in my opinion.

I wonder if the guppy was dead/dying? It seems unusual for one to outright attack and eat a guppy - though if he's the only one of his species, he could be extremely stressed, which would make him aggressive.

I wouldn't rule out your puffer for the other guppies though.
