Unless you did an all zombie themed tank.. You could create a little cemetery at the bottom.. get some evil dead and return of the evil dead merchandise and plant it strategically around the tank.

You would have to have regular white skirt tetras as the main inhabitants and then get 5-7 of these as the zombified versions... could be fun for little while.
Tempting....

I actually kinda of like them.

I was also thinkinga nice scary looking piece of driftwood for a tree. How would I do the little ceramic tombstones?
Maybe some Blue LEDs for a moonlight effect?

I'm sure the darn things are going to be super expensive like the others, but keep an eye out for them in your local fish stores.

These look like silver dollars. Looks like a photoshopped image.

The fact that absolutely everything is green on them, and the edges are pretty sharply defined like they used the selection tool and just messed with the color balance. Here's an example i did in about 2 minutes:


And then, the only information i can find on these is on these forums and on one other forum, only one picture of them can be found as far as i can tell anywhere on the internet, and the glofish website says absolutely nothing about these anywhere i can find.

More pictures or this is a hoax imo.

I think it varies. I thought silver dollars have a more pointed dorsal fin. And silver dollars don't have a Adipose fin, the little fin after the dorsal.

No they are real, I have seen these at my LFS. They had pink ones too. I do not like them, even though I am okay with selective breeding. I guess it seems like cheating rather than spending years to breed them. They should make some colors that are a bit more normal.
