Over 2 weeks, but glofish are actually genetically modified zebra danios, and these GloFish kits aren't sufficient for them. If you don't mind me asking, what size tank are they in with what filter?

I have 11 GloFish in a 20 Gallon Long tank. I have the fluval U2 internal filter!

I suppose that's ok, but we suggest a 4 ft tank for zebra danios, although that tank can work.

3 days is no issue at all.


Thk you.

I was back on Monday evening, thank God, all my fish survived.

I was worried with a batch of newly born albino fries that were born on Monday before I left on Thursday. Fries without food for complete 3 days! And they survived. What I did was to switch on the tank's light all the way and put those "grassy" plant(sorry I dont know its name) floating. I believe the fries must have some micro foods from that floating plant and algae.
