What do you get when you cross a moderately easy to-care-for freshwater fish with the brightest new breakthroughs in the aquarium hobby? The perfect starter fish for your desktop, kid's room, or specialty setup!
Fluorescent GloFish have expanded to also include the new line of Tetras which also come in two neon colors: Electric Green, Sunburst Orange. GloFish are not dyed and their color, which is inherited from their parents, does not fade!
Original generations of GloFish were genetically enhanced as embryos to help detect environmental pollutants and advance scientific research. Now every generation of GloFish is born with its amazing color! The brilliant hues are produced by a fluorescent protein gene which occurs naturally in some marine organisms.
Keeping GloFish is as easy as keeping Tetras. For best care, keep this peaceful fish by themselves in small aquariums or in small schools with equally non-aggressive fish. Since they are omnivores, feed GloFish a varied diet of flake and frozen foods.
