Breeding geneticly modified fish is not cruel; like jaysee said, its a completely different discussion. Its just my opinion that I don't like it, but there is no cruelty to the animals. I worry about creating an animal that is not as attractive or healthy or fiesty as the original, its all about dollars and cents, I know, but ...

Glofish were created to be water quality indicators. They were supposed to glow when toxins were present, but they just glowed all the time. So, moving to the consumer market, the failure became a success.

No doubt a case could be made that the process of creating them was cruel. But that is done and over with now, and we are here today. I think it's safe to assume that they've perfected the process by now, with regards to the creation of new lines.

Sorry you missed my point, I really wasn't clear. I was actually saying I would spare the OP how it's done. I know you guys know!! I don't know if the OP does.

But we should get back on track. my goodness we get lost don't we? lol.

Yes I agree that the dye does usually wear off and No we really shouldn't buy these kinds of fish as it just encourages the breeders to make more. If we don't buy them, they won't bring in more. Post a pic of your tank if you can ashtreelogger, we'd love to see it.
