I love these guys! I have a few, one of which is almost 2 years old. He's the oldest in my tank! They're the perfect size; not too big, not too small. Their color is subtle yet stunning. :D

Hi I bought one of these guys and after a week ---my three parrot fish, my angel fish, my pleco and my panda cory catfish all had chewed fins and tails! He would corner my parrot fish and then just keep nipping at her tail. The only one he didn't seem to nibble on was my green severum. I have put him in his own tank. He seems very cranky and I am not sure that I like him too much.I guess time will tell--right now I say he is a MEAN fish! Ronda

I have 3 albino versions of these colourful tetras. Mine are currently 2"-3". These fishes are rather scrappy fellows. They love frozen bloodworms and often fight for it. These fellows grow quickly!I first bought them in july when they were 1/2"-1".

I had 3 hatchetfish. Two of them just flew out when I didn't have the top on my tank! If you have any hatchetfish, keep a lid on your aquarium!

I got one of these dudes, and it has eaten many fish since I got him a few years ago. I got so mad once, that I snatched him out of the tank and tossed him in the toilet to flush him down the drain. Well he BEAT the flush, despite 2 flushes. After surviving that, I took him out of the toilet and put him back in the tank. He still lives and likes to kill. lol

I had bought ones of these about six months ago along with a few neon tetras. About one month ago I moved to my college which was a three to four hour drive and they survived wonderfully! no ick or any other stress related disease. but I wanted to add a Bala Shark to my collection and when I did the Goldskirt Tetra became very aggressive and continuously torments the Shark which is quite larger than itself.

I love these little fish. i just got 6 of them today along with 5 black neon tetras and a blue german ram cichlid. They seemed to be a little scared at first and mainly stayed at the bottom of the tank along with the black neons, but after they got used to their new surroundings they are swimming all over the tank. The larger neons swim in pairs of 2 as the smaller ones swim in a larger group, the fish seem very happy and healty and are doing fine i plan to get more fish from the same family later on, nice additon to my community aquarium!!

I just bought 5 of these fish today and when i brought them home and floated them in the tank for 15 minutes and let them in the tank, they all started schooling together with the other 6 neon tetras i have. these fish are fun to watch swim and play with each other. i havent fed them yet so i dont know how theyll react when i put the food in the water. great addition to any community aquarium, good for begginers and experts

i have two glowlight tetra's and have had them for over a year. they're great community fish and seem very hardy. i would say though that the above statement saying that they will not over eat isn't true. i have found that they will normally eat until you can physically see there belly growing in one sitting. Maybe this is because i only feed my fish once daily?
