These remind me of the glow fish night lights from The Big Bang Theory that Sheldon makes.

I have a school of a dozen of these I have had for about 2 months now. They are beautiful fish. Supposedly, they isolated the gene that makes a jellyfish flouresce & genetically altered white skirt tetras, which are supposed to be pretty hardy fish. You need an actinic light for them to show their true color but I just bought a tank for them that comes with an LED light & they do flouresce under the white LED light as well as looking amazing under the lunar light.

They would be normal colored and then when the water levels started getting polluted they would glow to show the water was becoming contaminated. Then someone got the idea of selling them commercially to the fish trade and now here we are. While I don't think I will get any of them they do seem kinda cool|

Tempting to set up a small iwagumi-style tank, then have these fish in it! I'd probably be laughing for several hours reading all the hatred-filled comments hahaha!
......and no, I'm not really into these fish. I do like watching/reading people's reactions hahaha!

I think they were about 7.99 for the new ones and a bit cheaper for the glowing Danios. I still want to do my space or STALKER themed tank. Everyone loves post apocalyptic fish.
From the Glofish site, it seems like a blue or lunar light would make them glow nicely too.

I saw some of the big new ones!
Is it bad if I ever got these I would totally do a space themed tank? Dark gravel, dark background with stars and maybe a planet... little ceramic spaceship or cave?

I Just Got Some!!!
They are awesome little fish. I got regular and a long finned one! I only got 2 LARGE ones. I am planning on getting more. But they were $8! I my LFS said they are only here for Feb. until Glofish can make some more. They are going in my established tank until I can get the 40B.
