Buy GloFish® Electric Green Barbs, beautiful freshwater Barb fish that glow under black lights. Unlike other GloFish® fluorescent fish, which are Zebra Danios, the Electric Green Barb is a variation of the Albino Tiger Barb. The Electric Greens are created with selective breeding of the Albino Tiger Barb, using a certain gene in the fish to produce the Electric Green color.
GloFish® Electric Green Barbs are not injected or dyed. They breed and reproduce naturally with this fluorescent color. Electric Green Barbs look great under either regular daylight bulbs or under an actinic bulb. One of the hardier Barbs, this Semi-Aggressive fish prefers to school and will do fine in well-lit aquariums. While requiring some swimming space, Electric Greens will also appreciate cover along the perimeter of the aquarium. Schooling fish, they will do best when there are more than 3 Electric Green Barbs in the school so they can keep one another occupied rather than bothering other fish.
If you are interested in other GloFish® fluorescent fish, check out our listings for Galactic Purple GloFish, Starfire Red Zebra Danios, Cosmic Blue Zebras, Electric Green Zebras, or Sunburst Orange Zebras.
