Buy GloFish Sunburst Orange Tetras from PetSolutions! Unlike other GloFish® fluorescent fish, which are Zebra Danios, the Sunburst Orange Tetra is a variation of the White Skirt Tetra. The Sunburst Orange are created with selective breeding of the White Skirt Tetra, using a certain gene in the fish to produce the Sunburst Orange color.
GloFish® Sunburst Orange Tetras are not injected or dyed. They breed and reproduce naturally with this fluorescent color. These Tetras look great under either regular daylight bulbs or under an actinic bulb. One of the hardier Tetras, this peaceful fish prefers to school and will do fine in well-lit aquariums. While requiring some swimming space, this freshwater fish will also appreciate cover along the perimeter of the aquarium. Schooling fish, they will do best when there are more than 3 Sunburst Orange Tetras in the school. Generally peaceful, they can match up with just about any other type of fish that is not large enough to eat them. While this Tetra might prefer softer, acidic water conditions, most can adapt to a wide range of water parameters.
