Are glofish danios hard to keep?

Just wondering what I'm doing wrong with my new glofish, since everyday one of them dies.
While my water is testing perfect, and my neon tetras that are in the same tank are healthy and not bothering them, these darn fish won't live! :(

Might add a couple drop's of dechlorinator such as Prime(which detoxifies ammonia) to the bag while acclimating.
I have not kept these man made fish,but have cared for danio's a few times and they seem to like cooler temp's and more alkaline water.
But as I said,,these are man made mutant fish, and may be weaker overall than regular danio's.

Thanks, I did add Prime to the bag and the tank temp is 77, I'll try a water change. I'm just so upset that they didn't make it, especially at $6 a fish.
