Default Re: Glofish... Breeding true

I do have a couple problems with Glofish. Zebra Danio (the only Glofish I've seen) are very pretty as they are. Glowing them is like "gilding the lily" as far as I can see. Turns them into weird curiosities, I guess.

My other problem is that in order to get full benefit of the glowing you need a black light, guess an actinic bulb would do. Either bulb gives an unnatural light for critters that are day active. Has the typical owner of these fish ever looked directly into one of these lights? I can't imagine being forced to live under one of those.

Seems at least one company is making lots of profits on the tank aquaria and neon ornaments as well...
