(Then mine must be wild caught because they are almost completely metallic gold.)DoubleDutch said:Think they're tankbred gold tetras.
The gold color is caused by a (harmeless) parasite that the tankbred ones lack.
They’re in a 15 gallon now with an aqua clear 30 filter and 2 got sucked up and I found them swimming at the bottom unharmed. I now have a make shift preflter around the intake tube to prevent that from happening again until they’re bigger or I move them. Do you think I could keep them in a 45 when they’re bigger with an aqua clear 70 without using a pre-filter?DoubleDutch said:If they're silver, they won't get the gold color.
