are you sure they are glofish?? from my understanding glofish are lab fish.. meaning they were pretty much designed in a lab..and up until the blue color...there was only red,orange and green.....if you do indeed have all these dif colors. im extremely interested in working out a deal to get my hands on some dif colorss..

The blue is still pretty, but I don't care for the yellow faces. If they were blue with the red or white faces, I'd like to get a school of them. I think I'll wait until they've been around awhile and have the kinks worked out.

Does anyone else think it's weird that glofish are just modified zebra danios, which are blue anyway? So why would they make a blue one?

When I was little my sister won some glofish at a carnival. She had four, a green one, a pink/red one, a blue one, and a purple one. I remember because we named them Seaweed, Barbie, Midnight, and Lavender. Could that be right, or is my memory just playing tricks on me?

Yep. My personal opinion is that they are tacky, but I don't have a serious ethical issue with them. It's sad that the trade is going in this direction, though, there was a news report last year of different glow in the dark cichlids. I recall seeing an angelfish.

They were likely dyed/injected fish. They've been dying/injecting glassfish and tetras for years. Glofish don't have a purple strain, and because of the branding they are much more expensive than the injected/dyed fish are.
