Like their non-fluorescent counterparts, our fish are community fish and will “play well” with other fish. However, not all fish are this way, so we generally advise that people check with their local retailer for specific information on whether their existing fish can peacefully co-exist with GloFish. Alternatively, for a partial, but still significant, listing of other community fish, please visit . One point in particular to note is that our GloFish® Barbs can potentially become aggressive if they are not kept in groups of five or more. This is not necessary with our GloFish® Danios or GloFish® Tetras; while they prefer to be in groups of five or more, they will not become aggressive in smaller numbers. What's your favorite type of GloFish: GloFish Tetras, GloFish Danios, or GloFish Barbs?

The Glofish is a genetically modified zebra danio that comes in several different fluorescent neon colors such as red, green, orange, blue and purple. You can now get other species such as glofish tetras as well. The Glofish was genetically modified with the purpose to detect environmental pollution. Scientists were able to inject a fluorescent protein gene (from marine organisms) into the zebra danio embryos to create the glofish. There are no dyes or color injections into this fish. Successive offspring get the gene passed down to them from parents. They are still working on developing a fish to only fluoresce when in the presence of pollution and a portion of glofish sales goes to the advancement of this research.Purple GloFish tetra or Gymnocorymbus - Specs: average adult size: up to 2 inches long, average life span: up to 3 years with proper care, diet: omnivore, minimum aquarium size: 5+ gallons, water temperature: 72-80°FIf you are looking for glofish for sale they are kind of expensive for freshwater fish. A popular online live fish store has a price of $20 for a 3 pack or $35 for a 6 pack of glofish tetras. There is even a glofish tank kit setup you can get that comes with a voucher for fish that can be mailed to you.glofish....these really exist...aquarium kit includes blue LED lights and the fish actually glow (danios, pictured, and tetra varieties)....MUST HAVE #seaspacecoralforestHave you seen Aquarium Adventure's glofish tetras? These gorgeous fish are whiteskirt tetras that have been genetically modified (never dyed or tattooed!). They love to be in large schools. #AquariumAdventure #glofish #whiteskirttetraAlthough it’s easy to discredit corporate shills, the chief executive of Yorktown has a good point: “The black tetra has been sold for over 60 years and there has never been an ecological concern with it.” Color aside, the Electric Green Tetra is no different from this pet store standard. In fact, the copyrighted fish may be ill-suited to life outside the tank. While the wild version sports silver and black stripes, the GloFish tetra is a brilliant, day-glo green.
