Glofish Electric Green Tetra!

Glofish is producing new fish, Electric Green Tetras!

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.

Is it a tetra or a danio? Enquiring tetras want to know.

I don't have a problem with glofish being genetically modified, but I do have a problem with them being rather unhealthy over the long haul. Myself and many other who have kept them have noticed an alarming number of problems with them compared to other fish we've owned. Not sure if it's too much in breeding or what.

Very cool, I hope they're hardier than the danio glofish. I had the same problem as wendyjo where they get sick and die much younger than standard danios. Inbreeding causes all sorts of problems like that.

Interesting, I'll have to take a look at the wholesale lists at work. Thanks for the heads up. Glo-fish are hot sellers!

I thought I saw some neon Black Skirt Tetras at Walmart not too long ago... but I do know it was a tetra for sure.

Can't stand those things. I don't understand why people would want them

Pretty sweet looking actually, not something I'd put in my tank, but they will be big sellers for sure! Hopefully they are on some of my wholesale lists at work.

It appears to be a whiteskirt tetra?

Thats what I was thinking, except bred with the flourescent green gene. Personally I think these look better then the danio version!

As said before, probably wouldnt put any in my tank, but those are super cool looking!

Actually they look like zombies... Not for my tank personally...

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.

Does anybody have a list of Neon fish by chance? I know of the GloFish danio's (5 colors I'm aware of) and my local store had some bright red barbs for sale. I am wondering if it's by the same company or someone else?

These would great in my front entry tank!
