I bet you could and I'm willing to bet that the dominat trat would claim the coler.

The glo fish were spliced with cells from a jellyfish. That is what gives them the 'glo fish' trate.

The resulting fry will still exhibit the same color from the parent glofish assuming it has been bred with the original form though with more prominent stripes. I have not seen two different colored glofish breed together so I have no idea how the resulting fry looks.

Keep your tank heavily planted. Leave it at least a few weeks with females already ripe with eggs. May guarantee you a few fry once you remove the parents. They're very easy to breed.

They breed better in groups than typical pair.

Guys, its illegal to breed glofish intentionally, if it was, they wouldn't cost so much.

4.) Intentional breeding and/or any sale, barter, or trade, of any offspring of GloFish® fluorescent ornamental fish is strictly prohibited.
