  1. Default Indian Glass Fish


    0 Not allowed!
    So I was browsing the tanks at my LFS today, and I passed by one tank that looked empty, but then I thought I saw something move out of the corner of my eye, so I looked again. It was absolutely amazing! I saw about 15 of what was labeled as Indian Glass Fish, and they were all sitting in the water perfectly motionless. They were the cutest little buggers at barley 1/4 inch. One only slightly twitched to get a better look at me peering in, but I couldn't get over how cool these little guys were. I don't think I've ever seen fish sit that still in water before. Not even their fins were moving! :D



    Has anyone ever kept these cuties before? I wonder what their personality is like.
    This is my witty and clever signature. You like? :)

    They are the species that suffers to become painted glass fish/tetras.

    I wonder why anyone would want to paint them? They are already beautiful.

    Unfortunately, suppliers don't think that way, and uneducated people only see these beautiful fish...as did my kids and myself in the beginning which is how we ended up with a glofish, and 2 fruity tetras. Once I found out I swore never to purchase again. But picture the parent who allows their child to have an aquarium, maintenance is minimal at best, when it gets too dirty, or all of the fish die, they just scrub it all out and let them restock. After all, they are only fish, fish die. Then your little girl sees these brightly colored pink and blue fish and wants them, how can you say no? And the people like this obviously don't care about the welfare of said fish so now a cyle of purchase, dies, repurchase has begun and the suppliers will of course keep up with demand!
    Speaking of, today I saw a colored botia loach, and it just tore my heart to think that these fine species are going to be the next type of unsuspecting victims of tanks not properly set up, not properly cared for, and most purchasers will have no clue what a botia even is, just that it is beautiful. I had done some research on the botia loaches awhile back because I was considering purchasing some, and knew that I had seen a pretty colored loach somewhere so I asked the store employee, and he said although he didn't know the scientific name, he did know for sure that it was dyed.

    I like the glofish. They are not dyed or injected, the color is permanent because it is genetic. They added a fragment of DNA from a coral into the genome of a gold zebra danio, and now they breed different lines with many neon colors. It is not harmful to the fish and they do not suffer at all.
