    Meh, I`ve been fishing around Three Mile Island and Chernobyl for years, and they ALL glow. Seriously though, that`d make night fishing soooo easy lol. "There`s one"

    um, these fish are NOT glow in the dark, theyre only florecent, theres a difference. theyre just very shiny and colorful, you wont see them if you turn out the lights.

    just to clear that up

    "um, these fish are NOT glow in the dark, theyre only florecent, theres a difference. theyre just very shiny and colorful, you wont see them if you turn out the lights."

    I assume, though, that they would glow under UV (black light).

    I love how professional geneticists can just have their years of hard work rubbished on the internet. A buddy of mine did this in Uni with worms for his degree. It really does work.

    ummm yeah lame... what a crap thing to develop, do they not realise that ninety percent of deep-sea marine life is estimated to produce bioluminescence in one form or another. And everyone knows that bioluminescence totally kicks fluorescence`s ass.

    I love it! Chinese dude: "It started out as scientific experiment, but then we saw great potential in making devorative fish!" Which of course is much more important then science :)
