GloFish ?

how often would i have to clean it ?

I had goldfish before but they all died quickly, so are these a good pet to have ? But the goldfish are a story for another time.

2 gallons is sooo small. If you love that tank, why don't you get a bit bigger one, than you can have a nice school of glofish. Remember, the smaller the tank, the more you must do water changes and be diligent about checking water parameters, so you don't lose fish.

I know they are small fish, but how about starting with a 5 gallon? That gives the fish a bit more swimming room, and allows you go get 5-6 fish? Maybe 7-8 even, but I'd cycle the tank, and add fish a few (3) at a time.

I agree with Gwen, glofish are a type of danio. Danios ARE schooling fish and are very active. They need at the minimum 10g that is still arguable. A 2g fish tank could be pushing it with just 2 glofish. They need about +5 in a school and no less.
They are nice fish though.

My wife had a tank of those. They are kinda pricy, and somewhat skittish, and the fish themselves dont really "glow" but the plants and the rocks do, lol I reccomend at least a 10 gallon tank.

In a 2g? Most fish are schooling fish like neon tetras and cories. Really the only fish is a betta. A 5g would give you much more variety of fish. A 10g would give you a lot of possibilities.
