They are the same species but I believe the Leopard gene is recessive. Therefore, breeding a Leopard danio x Zebra danio will produce Zebra danios het. Leopard. Meaning, they are carrying one copy of the Leopard gene but not showing it. And if you really have adequate time for this project, you can show that breeding Zebra het. Leopard x Zebra het. Leopard will produce (ideally) 1/4 Zebra, 1/2 Zebra het. Leopard and 1/4 Leopard.
Do you eat commercial corn products, soy beans or even buy live Christmas trees? that's just to name a few of the very commonly gene spliced things out there that most of us use and come into contact with everyday.
just some food for thought ^^
