Hey, can I keep two glowlight tetras in a five gallon?

2 fish that would look nice in that tank would be a guppy or a pair of male guppies

What are the dimensions? That would be very helpful to know as certain fish require certain swimming space.

I wouldn't keep any fish in less than a 10. You could try shrimp instead."Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known." Carl Sagan

5 gallons is certainly a small space, but I do agree with vafa. A few Guppies or endlers(which are even smaller) should fit in a 5 gallon.

Bettas are apparently a favorite. That gets my vote.~Manna
