What are GloFish(R)?
GloFish(R) were originally bred to help scientists in detecting environmental pollutants. By adding a naturally derived fluorescence gene to the fish, scientists hoped to quickly and easily determine when a waterway was contaminated. Scientists soon realized the public’s interest in sharing the benefits of this research and GloFish(R) were officially brought into the marketplace.
GloFish(R) acquire their fluorescent color via a fluorescent protein gene that they inherit from their parents and pass on to their offspring through traditional breeding. Because of this, each line of GloFish(R) originates from a single fish. For example, all Starfish Red Danios are descended from a single red fluorescent zebrafish.

It comes with almost everything, but you will likely need a heater. Most fish require the water to be a certain temperature. Glofish are tropical fish which require a temperature of 76-80 degrees. The one I purchased was about $10. I put the description below. I also got a small thermometer for about $3 that you can use to monitor the temperature just in case the heater malfunctions.
Test the water before you add fish! This is crucial! This was our first tank so we had no clue. We only added water conditioner. When we went to purchase the fish, there was a woman exchanging her dead fish because they didn't let the tank finish cycling. It can take a few days or longer for the water to be safe for fish if you don't add some sort of stabilizing treatment. I ended up running back home to get a sample of water so they could test it. Good thing I did because it was not ready and our fish would've likely died. We came back three days later and they told us it still wasn't ready. They recommended we add Tetra SafeStart Water Treatment which is basically good bacteria that helps reduce the ammonia and nitrite levels. We followed the directions on there and the tank was ready the next day.
My kids absolutely love it! The fish seem to be doing great. We feed them TetraPro Tropical Color Crisps. It's really not difficult to set up at all. The hardest part was making sure the water was safe. Just wait a week or so after you set it up or go to your pet store and let them recommend what you need. And don't worry, most pet stores have a refund or exchange policy for fish. Ours will refund or replace if they die within 30 days. I hope this review was helpful. I know it's lengthy, but I just want everyone to know what they need beforehand. It would've saved us time if we had known.
