Can glofish reproduce?

It was a total accident-I had no idea they had spawned, and before that I had been curious as to their ability to spawn as well.

I traded all the adults for a fish tank (I had taken them in trade originally-I have livebearers-I don't mess with egg layers as a general rule), and discovered the babies after the adults were already gone. So weird to have babies you didn't know about from fish that aren't even there!!

Glo fish babies..HELP :)

I recently had a green glo fish full of eggs..did some research and everywhere I looked It said they would lay eggs but the other fish would eat them..thought I would have no babies..Just found 8 babies swimming in my tank..would like to keep them..how do I raise them and what do I feed them..they may have just hatched cause I did a water change like a day ago and now they are swimming around..lol..They have no color yet but did crush up flakes as small as I could and they appeared to be eating it.Some one any one help help..I also have cardinal tetras and a couple of mixed fruit tetras.have a loch looks like an eel..he hides you rarely see him.not sure what the babies are but like i said the green glow fish was full of eggs..If anyone knows how to get them raised would appreciate the help..kind of excited to see what they will be...

as long as you don't sell the fish you are not doing anything wrong. if they claim their fish are sterile. then ooops. just don't sell them. but you can keep them or give them to a friend. i am interested to hear that they have color to them. i herd that they were only died that color and would have standard zebra danio offspring. can you post pics? might have to get some blue ones if that is the case :)

i would try to separate the babies if you want to keep them. you can feed the babies the crushed flakes, first bites, or baby brine shrimp. i have never had luck getting my guppies to eat the first bites. but have had good luck getting them to eat the crushed flakes. have never tried baby brine shrimp as i don't know how to hatch them. but i am sure there are plenty of people who do, or you tube prob has a video on it

The fish will breed with the colors (don't know how they might "mix" though!). Glofish are zebra danios that have been genetically engineered with DNA from a jellyfish or anemone, I can't remember precisely the organism that was used. The "glofish" are patented, but you can breed them and give them away all you like, probably can't sell them legally until the companies patent runs out!
