Its a glofish.
The thing is, they are a brand of fish, or rather trademarked, so unless the store bought them from Glofish, they can't be sold with that name. Could be the same genetics, but the store might have purchased from a private citizen or a breeder who cross bred the genetics into their fish. Meaning they can't use the term Glofish.

Be the Better you.

Those fish are not what they are advertised as they are dyed, not born with the bright colors that the brand claims.

Genetics, are fun, and they are born that way(at least the gen2 and onward is)
