GloFish® cory cats have arrived. Nautilus Tropical Fish Wholesale’s Joe Hiduke shares that these are “a development that has been a long time coming; we were finally able to display these fish for the first time at SuperZoo. These have actually been in development for longer than the GloFish bettas, which have been on the market for over two years now.”
