Heya all how many of you keep GloFish and what's your favorite color.
Have any bad experiences, GloFish not mixing well with other tank mates?

I found the new GloFish Tetras at Petco in my town.
They are the same green the Danio version are but Skirt Tetra

Interesting fish. Are they in quarantine? I would highly suggest it since Petco doesn't have the best reputation for carrying healthy fish. I have about a 50% success with them, and have been doing this a long time.

I have had the danios before, Animal House carries some of the beautiful blue ones but I have yet to find the purples.

No they aren't and I have had bad luck with Petco stock before, the tank is good and they were just In like an hour when i got them.
I hope the Petco curse doesn't strike.

I will be watching them closely the next few days as they settle in, so far they seem to be doing well with the painted tetras i already have.
I have one purple and a blue daniio, which I also got at the Animal House. Along with other colors, green, orange and red Very Happy

I went to the GloFish website and the Green tetra is the first in their line up on tetras, I think they are making the other colors as they go.
I know i am gonna keep an eye out for other colors as they show up, the color is permanent.

I know, I am so hoping that male Molly breeds with my other large mollies, I want to see what the babies look like.

Petco is ok Only if you can get there when they get their stock or the day after, any longer and the fish probably has had time to get the sickness in the tanks.

I love petco... when I take my kids there I can show them every fish disease in the book. It's like a "what not to do" festival. A great educational experience at least. Over the years I have picked up some nice fish there but that's the exception rather than the rule in my experience. I have to admit that it's nice that they are open late for supplies, etc... I'd always rather buy at the AH.

I know what you mean, I have seen textbook illnesses at Petco
Whoever keeps the fish tanks there really needs to be fired or given help if they can't maintain them.
I shop there often even tho i am wary of the fish stocks there, love the 1 dollar a gallon sales they have.
