I've never had trouble with glofish since I've never kept them before, I'd just heard from others they didn't do well for them. Since they are a danio and I've had them for as long as 5 years, I'm hoping they will last as long even though they are an engineered fish or perhaps because of! Always a mystery how sometimes a particular school of fish will have a die off and the rest of the community is fine. Hope you get everything balanced and the survivors will be fine. I'm planning on adding a trio of pepper corys to the sewer next week, decided against the dojos, they just get too large and as loaches prefer to have some company and I'm just not wanting to take a chance on their full grown size in just a 20 gallon. All my other loaches are either just under 4 years old with some being closer to 5. The horsefaces are my favorite, they are so comical and the 5 of them have been amusing since day one. Well, hope you have an easier time with your fish this weekend. perhaps some of the fry will survive too and soon you'll have lots of happy fins to feed.

How's your fish?
I'm happy to say the glofish are doing really well, having never kept them before and heard a lot of people had a hard time with them, so far so good here. Will be getting 6 more later this month so the original 3 should be happy to get a bigger 'clan'. All my tanks are doing well, all fish healthy and hyper and I'm currently plotting out my next future tank, hopefully it will happen around the winter holidays. Anyway, just clearing out blogs and catching up, hope all is well in your tanks.

Thank you
for getting back to me on the glofish. The room is always lit so the tank will have ambient light anyways at night. I think Pristella Tetras would work as well as the ones I used to have looked beautiful with the tank light out in a lit room.

Leaving vote on your beautiful tank!

Here is a Vote for your nice looking tank
Hi, I like your selection of fish. Do the glofish show up well in a dark tank? I ask because where I work is a state run training school and the "Dorm Office" has a 20 gal high planted without fish currently. I told them they could not have the light on 24 hours and so they want fish that will show up when the light is out - for the night shift staff.
