 Saw  this  link  shared  on  my  facebook  and  thought  it  would  be  interesting.  Looks  like  there  is  a  succession  to  the  painted  zebra  danios.

 If  you  read  the  article,  you'll  see  that  these  are  not  dyed  (or  tattooed  or  painted)  like  those  Parrot  Fish..
 
 These  are  Genetically  Modified  (GM)  which  is  only  slightly  worse  than  man-made  hybrids  like  the  Flowerhorn.
 
 So,  the  reasoning  behind  whether  the  creation  of  these  fish  is  ethical  or  not  is  more  closer  to  the  ethics  discussion  related  to  GM  organism  in  general  (incl.  the  Bt  Brinjal/egg-plant/aubergine)..
 
 Thankfully,  as  these  fish  are  not  colored  (dyed,  tattooed  or  painted),  cruelty  is  not  a  factor.

 Cheers,
 Sid
 
 PS:  My  opinion  about  these  fish  is  the  same  as  my  opinion  about  the  Flowerhorn.

 let  those  fishes  be  in  the  dark..i  would  not  like  to  own  one..its  may  look  attractive  in  the  night,but  the  very  fact  that  it  is  genetically  modified  does  not  please  me  too  much..
 i  have  kept  only  wild  zebra  danios,not  the  pink  or  the  green  or  the  yellow  ones...i  dont  understand  why  people  stick  their  heads  and  experiment  so  much..the  harmful  side  effects  are  also  mentioned  in  the  article..i  am  totally  against  such  man  made  organisms..  Thumb Down

 These  are  morphed  images.  they  are  not  living  creatures.
 You  cannot  cross  a  owl  with  a  rabbit.
 Cross  hybirdisation  between  birds  and  mammals  is  just  not  possible.
 Hybrids  are  possible  only  between  same  species  or  closely  related  species.
 Somewhat  like  lion  &  tiger-  liger,  horse  &  donkey-  mule  etc.

 Man  has  been  playing  god,  changing  nature  since  the  time  he  decided  to  come  down  from  the  trees.
 Hybrids  are  a  part  &  parcel  of  daily  life.
 All  the  food  articles,  including  rice,  wheat,  vegetables  etc.  are  all  developed  with  selective  breeding,  which  now  includes  gene  manipulation.
 I  don’t  see  how  selective  breeding  is  different  from  gene  manipulation,  they  are  just  different  techniques  for  attaining  same  goal,  and  the  goal  is  changing  the  nature  to  suit  mankind.
 So  let  keeps  the  things  in  perspective,  and  not  get  carried  away.

 Well,  examples  are  more  effective  if  they  are  relevant.  Smile  
 I  don't  agree  with  the  process  of  artifical  painting  or  injectinng  dyes  in  fish  ,because  these  processes  hurt  the  fish,  however  glofish  are  not  dyed  or  painted.
