Mike’s Fish Tank – GloFish

Posted by  //  November 7, 2016  //  Articles, Mike's Fish Tank

GloFish are like their non-fluorescent counterparts, just with a brighter disposition. They are exactly the same in terms of care, including everything from general care and temperature preferences to water quality and nutritional needs. With a little care and attention, your fish will be a happy, healthy companion for years to come.

Every kind of fish has its own temperature preferences. In general, GloFish® fluorescent fish can live in a fairly wide temperature range, anywhere from 64-86°F but prefer temperatures of 75-80°F. Depending upon the temperature of the room in which your aquarium is maintained, an aquarium heater may be helpful to maintain this temperature range. The most important thing to remember is to avoid quick temperature changes, since these can cause ick and other fish diseases.

GloFish are relatively hardy, easy to keep, and get along well with other fish. However, not all fish are this way, so if you have other fish in your tank or are adding new fish to your GloFish tank, be careful to choose fish that can all live together in a similar environment. Here are a few key points that may be helpful: Like their non-fluorescent counterparts, GloFish are schooling fish and should ideally be kept in groups. This is particularly important with GloFish Barbs. Glofish like filtered water, so a filter is important for your glofish to do well.

Be sure not to crowd too many fish into a tank. Please avoid keeping fish (even just one glofish) in a small bowl.

Betta fish do the best in small bowls.

GloFish fluorescent fish thrive in all types of settings, including homes, offices, and classrooms. However, it is important that you do not place the tank in direct sunlight or close to a heating or cooling source. This will cause algae growth and can cause unwanted temperature changes.
