Danio Glofish is a genetically modified zebra danio that comes in several different fluorescent neon colors such as red, green, orange, blue and purple. They were genetically modified with the purpose to detect environmental pollution. Scientists were able to inject a fluorescent protein gene (from marine organisms) into the zebra danio embryos to create glofish. Successive offspring gets the gene passed down to them from parents. There may be some in fighting among themselves but keeping them in a school of 6 or more should help limit their fin nipping tendencies. They also look very cool when kept in large schools.
