Geocache Description:

GloFish (Danio rerio)

Fluorescent GloFish are the first designer-bred Danios (Zebra Fish) to come in five neon colors: Starfire Red, Electric Green, Sunburst Orange, Cosmic Blue and Galactic Purple. When ordering the assorted pack you will receive one each of the Starfire Red, Electric Green and Sunburst Orange! GloFish are not dyed and their color, which is inherited from their parents, does not fade!

Original generations of GloFish were genetically enhanced as embryos to help detect environmental pollutants and advance scientific research. Now every generation of GloFish is born with its amazing color! The brilliant hues are produced by a fluorescent protein gene which occurs naturally in some marine organisms.

Keeping GloFish is as easy as keeping Danios. For best care, keep this peaceful fish by themselves in small aquariums or in small schools with equally non-aggressive fish. Since they are omnivores, feed GloFish a varied diet of flake and frozen foods.
