    Question

    Hi,

    Well, I saw the glo-zebras and blahhhh. They are not particularly nice zebras to begin with and the color is far from total and far from uniform. They didn't look nearly as good as the photos I have seen. I am thinking that they are this year's "pet rock". I doubt that they will stick around at the high prices. They'll be cheapies soon enough after a few guys make some bucks. With all the incredibly gorgeous tropical fish in nature full of fascinating behavior, it says alot about the unthinking commercialization of our culture that this Frankenstein fish is the tropical fish that makes the national news!!!! I don't have anything against them really. They're just nothing to scream about.

    The "glo fish" just made the paper. As Rampuppy said, they are being used to detect levels of pollution. The focus of the newspaper article was specifically geared toward mercury pollution. Good subject for an ethics debate, kinda like medical technology and "playing God." Elgecko: You mentioned a "That Fish Place." There is a pet shop in Lancaster, PA called,"That Fish Place, That Pet Place" or something to that effect. Coincidence?
