Glofish is the name given to genetically modified zebra danios. Researchers in Singapore added a fluorescence gene from a sea coral to zebra danio eggs to produce glofish. This gene causes the genetically modified fish to fluoresce or light up in the presence of environmental toxins.

For starters, the betta shouldn't go with livebearers. I am not sure, but the livebearers would be ok with the danios. If you want livebearers maybe get some swordtail's or platys.

You should just keep a betta in a tank by itself.
i already have these fish. the betta is fine with the rest of the fish. he does chase sometimes but he is too slow

The danios might nip the betta. A school of 6 is recommended but 1 less should be ok. Add the fish slowly so they don't get too startled.

Good Luck,
Jake

If it's a Bristlenose or any other similar type it should be alright. If it's a common pleco, good luck finding it a new home.

BreederGuy, I hope you realise that your common pleco will outgrow your tank.
