glowlights are indeed enthusiastic feeders and often look that way. Should be back to normal by tomorrow.

Feed once a day and only what the tetras will eat in about 30 seconds. Ignore what it syas on the fish food packaging :).

I have 10 glow light tetra and I just checked a none look that, I feed them 2 small meals a day which add up to 1 regular meal and try and give them different food each time. Tetra min flakes plus and Hikari micro pellets.

Okay, so this pea thing keeps coming up...
I've always been curious, do you use a frozen pea? Cut it up? Smash it?
