shows two types of Glass Fish. The dark lines through the centers of their bodies are their backbones. The fish
in the middle is a Glass Fish, and the other fish are Glass Catfish.
Here are two Ghost Glass Catfish swimming side by side. These Ghost Glass Catfish do very well with small fish like Neon and Cardinal Tetras.

Glass Fish are very good aquarium fish. They are hardy and mild tempered, and they are good tank mates for Neon Tetras and the other small
tropical fish listed above. Unfortunately, we see a few Glass Fish "painted" with orange, yellow, blue, and purple dye, that are offered for sale in fish stores. We don't know how
the Glass Fish are dyed, but we are glad to say that we see fewer and fewer painted fish.
You said on your site that you didn't know how glassfish are dyed. Well I thought your customers might want to know the
horror of it. They take the fish out of the water, take a needle and inject dye into them ... Only about half of these fish live to be sold.
