    You can see the purple thing on top of the tank, that's the hood from the 1gal with the light in it. I also have a purple folder to the right of the tank to keep my computer screen from messing with him.The heater didn't turn

After some research I found that there is a species called Green Tetra (or False Neon Tetra) somehow we got a less widespread tetra along with our pretty blue ones.

    We have dubbed him "Itsuki" (a character from Yu Yu Hakusho anime). He shines ...
