Don't buy fish like these...

Recommended Posts

Are you playing Devils Advocate Cory?

Not that I know of LR, I just saw the link in my PFK newsletter and thought I'd share it. Its an issue but I guess a relatively minor one compared to the wastage issues.

 

Not 'too' bothered about the longfinned Koi myself Dales, most seem to do just fine but I really hate the Parrot Cichlid Sp, bubble eyed goldfish and other genetically deformed fish. Long fins I can just about accept, although in fin nippers it IS bloody stupid, but when the skeletal and organ structure are mutated, it does upset me to a degree.

 

GITD and Dyed fish just seem so unnecessary to me. So many die as a result of the 'treatments' given to them when Dyed. Not sure how they make the fish GITD so I should really reserve judgement.

 

So maybe I should re-name the thread title, 'Don't buy these fish, except the normal bodied longfinned ones, but use common sense with them and tbh I don't know how they make fish GITD'.

Far more catchy methinks...

No I'm not playing Devil's Advocate at all. 'Glow In The Dark" fish are made exactly the same way as GITD mice. It is done using a method called "gene splicing". You take the "glow in the dark" gene from a jelly-fish and insert it into the DNA of a fish egg. No "dye" is "injected" into the fish.

The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.

Yeah, I found that out last night actually, they can also use firefly DNA, or any of the bioluminescent animals I believe.

Not sure where I stand on this, not made my mind up yet. I suppose I could be indifferent but thats so not me!

I like to be bioluminescent. I'd make a fortune DJing.

Bio-luminescent live bait might just be the thing for a night time piking session ;)

The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.

do you think that glow in the dark fish would make good baits?

They might, but you would have to have deep pockets.
