Unpainted!
Glass Fish
 
 
This picture shows a Glass Fish above and another transparent fish below.
       

  This video 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.
 

Scientific Name: Now Parambassis ranga but previously Chanda ranga for a long time.


Comments
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.

 
 

Customer Comments

 
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.
 
  
 

Appropriate Home
An aquarium with an exterior power filter with a BIO-Wheel, a maximum of 1/4 inch of gravel, and an aquarium heater adjusted to between 75 and 82 degrees F. Click here for more information about warm water aquariums.

 
 
Glass Fish - By AquariumFish.net, Aquarium Fish supplier.   This is a Glass Fish for sale in our facility. These fish are called Glass Fish, because they are transparent like glass, and you can see through their bodies.
 
 

Recommended Diet
Floating flake food for tropical fish plus a few freeze dried blood worms, which are actually mosquito larvae. Both of these foods are sold in most places that sell pet fish. Occasionally feed my Glass Fish a treat of live Black Worms and live and frozen brine shrimp. Click here for more about Black Worms. Click here for more general information about feeding fish.

 

Compatibility
Keep Glass Fish in a group with at least 6 Glass Fish. Good tank mates for Glass Fish are Small Tetras such as the Neon Tetra and Glowlight Tetra, Harlequin Rasboras, White Clouds, Fancy Guppies, and Corydoras Catfish. Glass Fish do well with Angelfish unless the Angels are quite big, and the Glassfish are so small that they can be swallowed by the Angels. Click here to read more about several other groups of compatible fish.

 

Size and Lifespan
Glass Fish can grow to a bit larger than 3" and can live for a few years.
