These fascinating fish have been genetically altered to give off a bright neon glow. The genes of this Tiger Barb have been altered with the genes of a certain anemone that features the illuminescence, and that is how the GloFish came about!

The original Electric Green GloFish Barb released in 2012 was bright yellow-green with faint vertical bands and red in its fins. In 2015, the new "high contrast" GloFish Barb was released with black bands and black in the fins. The Starfire Red GloFish Barb is the newest release, released in Fall 2016.

The GloFish Barb is just as hardy as a regular Tiger Barb. They are an active fish that will hang out around mid-water or upper water level. They are great for community tanks but can become nippy if not kept in large enough groups; Tiger Barbs are best kept in groups of 6-8 fish or more. Feed them a varied diet of flake, small pellet, and occasional small-sized frozen food.

The glowing coloration of the GloFish Barb will not fade or change - it is within their genetic structure and will actually be passed on to their offspring should they spawn. To see them "glow" at their best, keep under blue "actinic" lighting. The colors will be bright under white lighting but will not "glow" as brightly.
