    Well i was at petsmart today... Looking for bn plecos. Nothing. Any ways i was looking at the fish and i saw something that stuck me wierd. It was a fish glowing green. Nothing weird but it looked different than the dianos and tetras ive seen before. With a little bit of close looking i figured it out. Albino tiger barbs.... They are not glowing.... Poor fellas.... Any ways just wanted to let you know...

    I think these are so awful. Why would anyone want a fish that's such an artificial colour? It desensitizes people to the fact that they are actually animals -- they become no more than a fancy decorating item.

    At least they're not dyed though.

    And those deformed blood parrots. At least these glofish have no problems eating or swimming properly, although I still don't agree with the practice. What's so wrong with the fish already available from nature that people need to do all of this?

    Ah, so there's no glofish in your region either? Those are made and sold as a decorative item.

    They got brought some of the pink danios in for a very short time, and then they realized they had made a huge mistake and they were genetically modified so the Department of Conservation and Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries had to spend a fortune tracking down everyone who bought them and destroying them. Of course they were never able to get all of them and some people still keep and breed them illegally.

    We don't have dyed or tattooed fish here either, thank God. Do you get they in the Netherlands?

    No, despite Monsato's efforts there's still a Europe wide ban on most genmod organisms. Not sure if there's an actual law against tattooed fish but I've never seen them. Don't think our culture would stand for that.

    Thank God for that -- neither would ours. No offence to the Americans out there but it says a lot about the country that they allow things like that to happen. Some people have no respect for life.

    eeek.... i didnt mean for this thread to become such a bashing on the fish or cultures or anything... i just wanted it to inform people that if they are buying glow fish, its possible they could be accidentally buying an aggressive species like tiger barbs. if we could stay away from debates on whos doing what and why that would be great...
