New Genetically Modified Glo-Cichlids!

Hi everyone! I was reading an article and just wanted to share it:
Fluorescent cichlids produced in Taiwan | News | Practical Fishkeeping

The glo-gene is being micro-injected into convict and angelfish eggs. They say that these could hit the market as early as this year!

Wow. Strange things going on. Can't believe it went farther than GloFish, but then again, here we are, with 4 species of fish being Glo.

I might get a cool angel one, but we'll see...

Who say's that you can't have more than one tank? Just get one more... just one...

For me, the whole GloFish thing was pretty cool at first. But all of the 3 gallon GloFish tanks and stuff like that is pushing it too far. I just know that when the angel fish come out, we will be seeing 5-10 gallon Glo angelfish setups. The fish themselves are, like I said before, honestly really neat, and I'm sure a nice big aquarium with a school of glo angels would look spectacular. Unfortunatly I don't all of the new glo fish aren't gonna get those homes though.

I want to see new glofish colors.
Rule number one: Always research a fish before you buy it.

Rule number two: Always cycle your tank.

Personally I absolutely hate the Glo program and all of their fish. Their whole program is just a way to make money without any thought towards the fish. I hope this comes to an end soon. These fish look so pitiful and unhealthy.

I saw glo-barbs at one of the chain stores on Friday. I think the whole thing is disgusting.

I looked at the side by side pricing on these things and cant figure out why danios ave $5, skirt tetras are $8, and the new barbs are $11. Don't worry they are going to have every different kind of fish with these ugly fluorescent colors soon.
