designer glow-in-the-dark zebra fish
The gist of this amazingly poorly written article is: "Genetically modified zebra fish have gone on sale in Taiwan and will soon appear in the US. The Night Pearls glow in different red and green patterns thanks to genes from jellyfish and marine coral."

because the fish are alive.
Less cool than:
because I can't (easily) modify them so that I can control the color rather than having a national cell phone network do it.
I saw a crayfish in a restaurant in vancouver that was bright blue, apparently it was a GM product.
Nope. Blue crayfish are a fairly common subtype of crayfish. Kinda like albinos.
That's good news, but i don't think i can get really excited until we see the first luminous monkey.
You mean a little like this one except with the jelly fish gene being expressed?
That's pretty rad, but i still don't see no damn glowing monkeys.
so you want a clone of ANDi who is green like the bunny?
"amazingly poorly written article"
And by the Science *Editor*, no less.
Surreal. Feels like a news headline from a mediocre SF story used by the author to prepare a reader for something really nasty happening on a really large scale. Oh well...
I try my best to avoid genetically modified foods.
Tomatoes *suck* because of the "helpful" modifications over the years.
But a glow-in-the-dark fish?
I must have a whole tank!
