The 30 gallon GloFish Tetra "Pack A" contains the following:
The GloFish Tetra is the latest selective-breeding development from the aquaculturists that bred the popular GloFish, a variant of the Zebra Danio (Danio rerio). The genes of this tetra have been altered with the genes of certain anemones, corals or jellyfish that features the illuminescence, giving the tetra a bright, permanent neon hue that is much safer to the fish than the outdated methods of dyeing or color-injecting fish. The original Electric Green GloFish Tetras are bright neon yellow-green in color; two new colors - Moonrise Pink and Sunburst Orange - were released in May 2013.
GloFish Tetras were created from the popular White Skirt Tetra, (Gymnocorymbus ternetzi). They are a schooling type of fish that generally need a group of at least 3 to be more comfortable in a home aquarium. As they reach a size that is a little larger than the other tetras, tankmates should be chosen accordingly. Smaller fish may be chased or nipped at if housed with these fish in a small aquarium. The will accept most flake and pellet food and should be fed once a day with a variety of these foods to help them keep a healthy immune system. All in all they are a very hardy aquarium fish and are excellent for beginners who are just learning about keeping aquariums.
The glowing coloration of the GloFish Tetra 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.

Ratings & Reviews
I have 21 GloFish in a 55 gallon tank, with 3 Clown Loaches and 2 Plecos. I have all but the green barb, because they get aggressive sometimes.
<br>The females are about 2 1/2" now, and the males have remained small (about the size of two side by side dimes). They seem to prefer less clutter at the center in their tanks to make room for swimming, so I got rid of most of the deco. or moved it to the back except for something for the loaches to hide in. After two years now with the same fish, we change 30% of the water once every two or 3 months.
<br>They love chasing bubbles from the bubble curtain we buried in the back. They get along great with the Clown Loaches, but they are scared of the now much bigger plecos which we will be putting in another tank soon, and avoid them.
<br>Well worth the expense of the then $8 each price!
