Ternetia Glo (Gymnocorymbus ternetzi).
Following the colored luminous Danio Rerio Glo (about which I have already written several posts), in 2012, the scientists received an order from the company Glofish.com on the creation of genetically modified Tetra. And I must say it turned out quite well.
And although I am not a fan of bright and not natural colors in an aquarium, but an adherent of biotopes and creating conditions as close as possible to natural ones, but commercial interest and curiosity took their toll and in early January I acquired 7 Tetras Glo, for the purpose of their subsequent breeding.
Unfortunately, the first acquaintance with Tetra Glo turned out not very joyful, together with them I brought Ichthyophthirius multifiliis in the aquarium. But in the end everything was successfully over, everyone was still alive and invaluable treatment experience was acquired.
Tetra Glo in the aquarium! Personal experience!
I will not describe the conditions of detention, water parameters and other details. They are practically no different from the conditions of their non-color relatives, about which you can find a lot of information on the Internet.
On my own I will add that if you have at least some idea of the balance in the aquarium, temperature, chemical composition, then you will not have any problems keeping Ternetium Glo. Fishes unpretentious, omnivorous and easily adaptable to many conditions in the aquarium. In addition, the fish are quite peaceful and easily get along with the same non-aggressive neighbors. As you can see in my video, they live quietly with Endler's guppies, shrimps, crayfish and snails. The only thing is that they can sometimes chase each other, so there should be places in the aquarium densely planted with plants.
As I said, in terms of feeding, the fish are just as unpretentious. Eat almost all types of feed. The only thing that noticed is that they are reluctant to pick up food from the bottom, and most often ignore it. This is due to the structure of their mouth, which is not very suitable for this.
Tetra Glo. Video + feeding!
Tetra Glo. Next step.
The next step is simple and logical. Try to dissolve them. According to information from the Internet, this is not at all difficult. So, I hope soon to please you with a new post!
