    The first truely genetically engineered pet, the GlowFish glow like fireflies because they had genes added to them from a glowing jellyfish to cause glowing fins. I think its neat, others think its wrong. The main issue is how did they do it and how could this technology be used to splice other organisms with new traits. I know I read where they put spider genes in a goat and now they goatmilk contains spider silk and can be used to make some superstrong fabric.

    The fish are sterile so they cant make it on their own and expect to pay $15-20 each when they make it in the US.

    What would be awesome is if they could do it to my eyes WITHOUT causing damage of course. But, wouldn`t that be cool looking with glowing eyes.
