Lol, this has medical experiment gone horribly wrong written all over it, the jellyfish part of it it's only so that they glow, they are doing the same thing with cats in the name of research on HIV AIDS and cancers that affect the immune system. I'm more upset about the color injection.

Yes, they're not dyed, and the color actually passes down from generation to generation.
Some fish are dyed and tattood, though not glofish

That really isn't a goal anymore they tried it out, it failed, and then they started selling them where they sadly became very popular. Now they have glo-tetras, and are even making glo-cichlids I fully agree they are the ugliest.

And by the way - clownfish aren't ugly!

Mine are beautiful two ocs clowns. Faces only a mother could love. I do agree once some clowns get big they do tend to get up on the ugly scale.

Ugly?? No. It's a grumpy old man look, not ugly. Just wait until you're grumpy old men, then you won't think it's so ugly! Haha
