Are these glofish?(if no, then what are they?)

I got these fish from a pet store a few days ago... There were labelled as "orange zebras" but the store owner didn't know what they are...
I suspect that they are glofish (especially the bright orange one, I'm not that sure about the other one, it might be leucistic but i don't know)

What do you people think they are?
(Picture of both are attached)

So you're saying that they both are in fact glofish? One of them is clearly bright pink but the other is rather not coloured.. What do you think of it?

Yes, one of those fish is a pink glofish, which is a zebra danio. I believe the lighter colored one is an albino form of that fish.

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

they look like glo fish zebra danios to me. some are red, blue, green,orange,etc, im sure they have some weird name like sunburst or lazer to describe their color that im not aware of.

edit- image isnt too clear and i don't specialize in zebra danions, but one of the danios may be albino and not genetically modified.

FWIW, Glofish are solid.

I'll put in a better picture of the bright pink danio.
Yeah even I feel so that the other zebra danio seems to be albino/lecustic because it's not brightly solid coloured.....

No. None of your fish are solid which is my understanding of one of the basic traits of Glofish.

the thing with glofish zebra danios is that they may appear to be fully colored under certain lights (black/blue lights?)
but they may appear in less color like in the image attached under normal led or fluorescent lighting
