Glofish?

My mom has gotten pretty interested in them lately. I was wondering what would be a good size tank for about 5 of them? Im not sure about the glofish tetras yet.

Glofish have the same requirements as Zebra Danios. They're a genetically modified version of the species.

They're pretty active swimmers so tank size suggestion would be 24" minimum. Here's the link from the TFK profiles.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Ronald is right (of course). They should not be kept in the tanks sold as "Glofish" tanks. The larger ones are modified tetras and they have larger tank requirements too.

I blame spelling mistakes on my iPad. You should too!

Danios can get a little nippy at times
