    Tetra Glofish?

    My partner & I are looking a getting a 10 gallon tank and some Tetra Glofish. We are still in the research process but I was wondering if anyone here had any thoughts or input?

    Does anyone have any glofish and have special care tips for them?

    Thanks!

    I saw tankfulls of these beauties whilst visiting Florida last year .. they haven't reached the UK yet and I'm wondering if their GLOW is down to some underhand method that we don't allow in this country ??

    They look very suspicious .

    They're genetically engineered. Something from Coral gives them that glow I think.

    They are cross bred with squid DNA to give them that glow under blue light. We sell them at work. The red ones are cool looking without the blue light as well as the neon green. The others are just dull without the blue light. No special care is needed. They eat the same as any other tropical fish. Same temperatures as well. Hope this helps.
