Agreed! But I am not going to discriminate! I feel sorry for the GloFish because a lot of people give them a hard time. They are thriving well in my community tank. I am not going to alienate them because of something someone did a long time ago to their ancestors. They deserve to be loved and cared for also. They deserve someone like me that admires them.

I also have neons, and Cory's. My danios have recently all died one by one within a week. It was strange. They were all natural Zebra Danios. What should I get to go in there now? I am afraid of the danios after they all died.....
is it a black light or blue led? black lights will burn your fishes retinas and eventually cause them to go blind

I'm not as against the fish themselves as I am the commercial nature of the whole thing. Raising the price of a $1 fish to $5, making those $30 2g glofish tanks, making it illegal to sell offspring, etc. etc. I think that while it may not be an issue now, they may be released into the wild more and more as people get fry and can't do anything with them. Convicts especially breed like rabbits, and zebra danios also breed very readily as well. Obviously nobody's going to have room for 100 convicts in their tank, and since you can't sell them, what do you do?

I think that depends on the wavelength of the light. The short-wave ones (used for mineral hunting) definitely will, while the long-wave will not harm them as much.
