LOL!

I think they thought they would look normal until the water was toxic, then they would glow, but it didn't turn out like that, so they now have Glofish. And if yours breed, it's against the law to sell them, since they are trademarked.

Or you could just sell them at the flea market between the bootleg dvd's and knock-off shoes.

Cause the stores buy them from the company who supposedly uses the profits to further advance their "science."

I don't like or dislike them. I think they would probably look pretty nifty against a dark substrate with some occasional black lighting.

The LFS pays a royalty on every fish. I've heard it's something ridiculous like $1 -$2 per fish. That's why they're so blasted expensive.
