I went to my LFS today and bought 10 painted glass fish. Went home and i suddenly remembered these guys were injected with dyed at some point. I already knew this many years ago but i had a brain fart...honest to God! Theyre drip acclimating for about an hr now. How hardy are painted glass fish?

They should be fine. Their whole existence is highly unethical and they tend to have health issues and shortened lifespans but otherwise they are normal fish, just dyed.

I had a "fruit tetra" last for a solid 3 years as a kid.

Be on the lookout for sepsis and bacterial infections. Feed them good foods like frozen or live, and they should bounce back pretty well. My tetra got TetraMin Flakes and a 100% water change every 4 months or so.
