For some fish they do inject dye to make them colorful. That dye eventually wears off! Not the case with these!

Yeah. I don't like the fish that seem to have injected colors ( red parrots ).

I just finished my 29 gallon cycle last week and I really wanted an Angel but I guess I will just wait and get two for my 55 gallon.

I put these in today

5 Long fin black skirt Tetras
5 Long fin Gold Tetras (they look a lot like the white Tetras you had in your picture)
5 Emerald Cory (I never liked them before but so far I love them in the tank)

I am at a stocking level of 73% and filtration of 158% at adult size, So I am thinking maybe just a couple more fish, the tank looks already active, maybe too active. Mine is non planted, just a big piece of fake coral in the middle with a sand substrate.

That's a pretty nice stock!!! I love long finned anything!! They are so hard to find though. Where'd you get your gold tetras???

Not to hi-jack the thread but they also make other fish into Glo-fish also, not just the Tetras, zebra danios too! And I'm sure others. I have the danios

PS--I have a planted 29 gal w/ 10 neon tetras, started w/ 4 peppered Cory's (only have 3 now), 2 Otos for algae clean up w/ Eco-complete substrate, amazon sword & wisteria and a HOB

And my Super Hero Glo-fish. HA!! It's in my son's room. It's black lite on 1 side & light on the other for the amazon sword. Since this pic, I've put in a CFL full spectrum.

For once, I actually like a background. Lol. It looks pretty natural and nothing out of the ordinary.
