The Northwest Arkansas Aquarium Society is an organization formed to bring together the aquarist community in Northwest Arkansas and the Ozark region. Our members range from new hobbyists to long time breeders, and we keep a large variety of fishes.

Come to a meeting! Learn about fish and make friends with fellow hobbyists.

    GloFish are the first transgenic fish. They were made by taking common zebra danios (Danio rerio) and inserting genes from jellyfish and sea anemones to make them glow. The fish breed true, passing on the fluorescent colors to their fry. GloFish are actually covered by patent and only licensed for sale within the United States (except California). Only two fish farms are licensed to breed them.

    Though GloFish breed readily, like any other zebra danio, it is illegal to do so intentionally. Hobbyists may legally keep any fry that appear accidentally, but may not trade, sell, or give them away without violating the patent. When the patent runs out, hobbyists and other fish farms will also be able to breed GloFish legally.
