They aren't glofish, they are dyed white skirt tetras. Meaning they will slowly fade back to white as they age and the dye is forced out/off of their body.

Curious how you determined they are not the genetically modified Glofish but instead a dyed variant.

GloFish not only have a brighter color but their pupils are not black in most cases. These guys are too pale to be anything but died and they're certainly not injected because you would actually see chunks of color. GloFish live up to the name and the slogan born brilliant dyed fish don't live up to it because it's just the top layer of skin that's been converted to that color.
