I agree TheXman, the inserted protein sequence on the color gene should not affect their behavior at all. I am curious, however, as to how you came up with the idea that they have fish TB? I would imagine it is much more likely that it is something else--a bacterial infection perhaps. Is one picking on the other one?

It's probably too early to say it has TB, but when I lost my zebrafish, he was acting like iPesci's, he kind of sulked in the corner, refused to eat, just wasted away, no flashing, itching, spots, inflamed gills, no visible symptoms of anything bacterial. I read that danios are particularly susceptible to fish TB and velvet and that with TB they would just waste away, so I figure that's what got mine. I'm probably jumping to conclusions, but if it's not just a matter of the fish needing to settle in, or not having enough companions, my money's on TB, assuming none of the other visible signs of infection appear.

2 of my normal zebra danios died of TB, no symptoms except no eating and sulking in a corner
