GloFish are not dyed, they possess a natural fluorescence gene and their color won't fade. They absorb light and re-emit it which creates the impression that they are glowing. GloFish were developed by adding a natural fluorescence gene to a zebra danio egg. The offspring incorporated the gene and continued to pass it down to its own offspring.

GloFish are hardy, community fish that get along well with other fish species, but be careful when combining other fish with GloFish, as not all fish are friendly.

Danio Glofish is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful, playful little schooling fish I had my two Glofish living with three long fin leopard danios. Though they are normally peaceful, they can be a bit pushy around feeding time. They got bullied a lot by my dominant leopard danio, so them getting enough food is sort of a problem if you put them in a tank with aggressive fish. These fish are really sensitive to water quality, they need water with a ph of 7.0 , nothing more nothing less. My failure to keep the ph in the range resulted in my smallest Glofish's and smallest leopard danio's deaths. You can find out if they are getting sick from bad water quality if they have bent spines and are swimming weird or laying down on the bottom of the fish tank trying to breathe. Feed new ones in the tank every other day, and fish that have been in the tank for a while every day. Only feed a little bit per fish, even if the want more! I have 3 fish left, one Glofish and two leopard danios, and their doing fine. They do great with live plants and love to school, even if they are different kinds of fish. The larger leopard danio's nipping fins turned into gentle playing after a while. I would recommend them to any body, leopard danios too, but they don't sell them at petsmart, so I don't have any reviews on them. I love these fish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great fishies I've had these guys for at least a month and a half and they have been very nice. I have experience with danios already as it is and I really like the fish. I was looking at the other glow fish but I liked these best and danios have been very hardy fish for me. I have a pink one and a blue one in a 20 gallon tank with a giant dani a gourami and two guppies and ofc a pleco. The little glow fish just chase each other around the tank having fun basically and have only picked on my guppies a few times but never hurt them. They also have never been picked on by the other fish but I have a lot of fake plants for them to hide in to. But if its a first time or still new with fish I would suggest danios But i wouldn't suggest really getting little ones with big like my fish. I just know my big fish are very docile and don't do much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love her Mine is a female. Her name is Glowy. She lives with my albino pleco casper and my male betta buddy. She is a very pretty fish. I may soon buy her a male companion. I dont have a black light. Their tank has normal LED lights.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! I have a school of four of these (in assorted colors) in my twenty-six gallon. I'm planning to add more in the future when I get some money saved up (as they are a bit overpriced, I'd say). They get along well and are very hardy. I also noticed that they love to swim in the filter current more than other fish. Overall, a wonderful, pleasant fish to have, especially if you own an aquarium lamp that emits a blue light.
