Lol it was just a funny thought, if what made them glo still glowed after they died and someone were to use their black market breed fish as feeder fish...it would kinda be like...well when I was a kid we had this dog that loved to eat crayons, made our back yard very colorful.

I wanted so glow fish along with some glass catfish to go in an alien themed tank that never came to fruition. one of our LFS won a prize with a design that was lit fropm underneath with glass tubes in the tank distributing the light by passing it through the substrate. I wanted to make it look like the toxic lake in the Simpsons movie.

Then you'd need to pick up some one of those radioactive 3-eyed fish too, but from what I remember, Blinky (first one of them) was almost as big as Bart himself. You'd need a humongous tank.

D. rerio is a model organism. It was established as an alternative for people who want to work on a vertebrate but don't want to use mice, rats, or chickens.

GFP= green fluorescent protein. it's from jellyfish. It is widely used in science. The three scientists who discovered it won a nobel prize. there are many other colors: redFP, yellowFP, cyanFP, bluFP.

The idea was to use zebrafish as a biosensor. This isn't as complicated as you would think. If you can find a gene that gets turned on in response to exposure to a specific toxin and place GFP in that spot, then you would have a fish that would in effect sense the toxin.

Please, don't put science in quotes just because you don't understand it. It is very disrespectful. A quick google search would explain how common this stuff is.
