Why GloFish?

GloFish fluorescent fish add brilliant color to any home, office, or classroom aquarium. These fun fish have the unique ability to absorb light and then re-emit it, creating the perception that they are glowing.

What are GloFish?

GloFish were originally bred to help scientists in detecting environmental pollutants. By adding a naturally derived fluorescence gene to the fish, scientists hoped to quickly and easily determine when a waterway was contaminated. Scientists soon realized the public’s interest in sharing the benefits of this research and GloFish were officially brought into the marketplace.

GloFish acquire their fluorescent color via a fluorescent protein gene that they inherit from their parents and pass on to their offspring through traditional breeding. Because of this, each line of GloFish originates from a single fish. For example, all Starfish Red Danios are descended from a single red fluorescent zebrafish.

3 Species in 6 Stunning Colors

GloFish are available in 3 species: GloFish Danio, GloFish Barb, and GloFish Tetra. Aside from their brighter disposition, each species is identical to their non-fluorescent counterparts. This includes everything from general care and temperature preferences, to growth and nutritional needs.

GloFish come in six stunning fluorescent colors including Starfire Red, Sunburst Orange, Electric Green, Cosmic Blue, Galactic Purple, and Moonrise Pink.

It’s majority black with only a few color gravel, so be warned! I ordered two bags of the “Glofish 5-Pound Aquarium Gravel Bag, Black with Fluorescent Highlights” and it looked nothing like the photograph which shows a colorful bag of gravel. What I received has about a 90% black / 10% color ratio (I’m uploading a customer image, so please see above). I had to place a second order for “Glofish 5-Pound Aquarium Gravel, Bag Pink/Green/Blue Fluorescent”. The bags are heavy, so it costs about $10 in shipping. I hope my review helps others avoid the frustration I had to experience.

Nice looking under black/blue light Purchased 2 5-lb bags of this gravel from Petco for $4.99 each. This product, the GloFish branded gravel, not the Petco branded also available on Amazon. 2 bags was a good amount to cover the bottom of a 10 gallon tank. See customer image for an idea of the black to color ratio that comes in the bag and decide if you want to add additional color with one of the standalone or 3 color bags. Tank system is the 10 gallon GloFish tank kit that comes with most of what you need to get a small tank set up (tank, hood, flourescent LED lights, filter, purifier solution, heater, and a small food packet).

Beautiful colored gravel

Customer Video Review Length:: 1:20 MinsLooks spectacular under the Marineland led light. Even if you do not have the special lighting, it still looks beautiful with the wonderful colors. Try adding black colored gravel under first then add the layer of the glofish gravel. The two blend would give your aquarium a lively look.
