Won't be getting those again. Plus, despite the MSRP of $6, I've seen them going for up to $16. Cool, yes, but not $16 cool.
You noticed that too? I thought I was only hallucinating when I see some glofish in my lfs in seemingly weak conditions hence I chose not to try them.

tophat, how long did your glo-fish take to die?

It's been about a week and mine are doing fine so far. I'd rather not lose them, I can see them best when I am in the bed with out my glasses on.

Some of them weren't in top shape to begin with, and they were gone within a couple of weeks. The rest of them, over the course of 3 or 4 months. I still have 2 of the original 9, and they are starting to show some of the symptoms the other ones had - hollow bellies, pale coloration around the head, that sort of thing. Still pretty active, though.

I got these gift cards from my coworkers during the holiday, so I was checking out Petco for fish to buy. I owned a 40gals tank with 1 corny catfish, 3 tetras, 8 full sized guppies (4 male, 4 female), and close to 20 small guppy fries in the tank. Will the GloFish do fine in the tank with those fishes? Glofish is kind of expensive as they cost $4.99 each. I bought other fishes usually when Petco had them on sale for 5 for $5. :)
