The new Glo-Tetra

25 Feb

Not the Glo-Fish (Zebra Danios) that we all know about, I am talking about the Glo-Tetra. I was just at PetCo buying some crickets and there was a tankful of green glowing fish.  I thought the body shape was that of a Black-Skirt Tetra.

Found photo on The Planted Tank website.

Sure enough, they displayed the scientific name Gymnocorymbus ternetzi and then I knew that they are genetically engineered Black-Skirt Tetras.

They were priced at $9 each.

No, I did not buy any.
