do you mean the danio species of glowfish?..............Their was a big debate about breeding them on here a few months ago........Its illegal to breed them, the fish have been patented because of their altered color state..............I doubt if any thing would happen if you did breed them, but i just wanted to make you aware of it

bary trotter 07-24-2009 04:15 PM

yes the danos

It is not illegal to breed them but it is illegal to sell what you have bred. They are genetically modified zebra danios that have some jellyfish DNA in them. That fish was patented and it is a patent violation to breed and sell them. Nobody can keep you from having them breed in your own tank, they will do that with no help from you, but selling them after violates the patent.

can i give them away for free

FishFreak95 07-28-2009 10:46 AM

They are patented fish that contain coral DNA not jellyfish.
No You cannot distribute them in anyway legally(from what I can remember)

You can breed them with other danios or other glow fish just as long as they are not sold or given away.

I do not think giving them away would be an issue, selling yes, but a gift? Who is to say you did not buy them at a store and give them to a friend?
