Glofish are zebra danios injected with color. They usually like a larger school than just two. And they like alot of swimming space.

+1 with the rounder thing. The rounder the fish looks it usually is females. Streamlined ones are usually male. And even with that you would have to compare a bunch to get an idea of what to look for.

They aren't injected with anything, they are genetically modified. These fish are born like this. There is a HUGE difference
