I was wondering what everyone's take on this would be... I was at my LFS the other day and my sister was with me and she fell in love with these very pretty fish and excitedly called me over and I felt horrified. They were Zebra Danios and the label on the tank said something like, Orange glow Danio and Red or Cherry glow Danio? Something like that. Anyway, They did look just like regular Zebras but maybe a tad larger and they were fabulous reddish and orangish colored but you could still see their stripes and see through them a little just like a fish that hadn't been dyed. I am wondering if anyone has seen these anywhere and if they really are a breed. I've been looking in fish species books, etc but haven't seen any or even seen a mention of them as being a variety that is related. Considering how pretty they were, I would imagine everyone would know of them and that is why I am asking. I really respect this locally owned LFS and would really be disappointed to think they had these fish on purpose. I am tempted to ask them what they are and how they get fish like that just to see how they came to have them and see what they say. I do know that they will buy or take fry from a person once they are grown enough to sell in their store as long as the fry are big enough and healthy. I am just hoping (pipe dream possibly) that they maybe came upon them from someone and are just selling them because there was nothing else to do. What do you guys think?
