Glo Barbs

Facts and Information

glo barb

Original generations of Glo Barbs were genetically enhanced as embryos to help detect environmental pollutants and advance scientific research. The brilliant hues are produced by a fluorescent protein gene which occurs naturally in some marine organisms. Keeping Glo Barbs is as easy as keeping Barbs. 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.
