someone else on this forum is already attempting to purchase equipments to make his own line of glofishes. By glofish you mean the artificial ones right?

The genes that make them glow are GFP, CFP, YFP. green, cyan, and yellow fluorescent proteins. I think they are kind of expensive to purchase right?

the GFP gene falls under I guess autosomal, and I guess dominant obviously. Your questions have very little to do with their glowing abilities.

yeh mate, the questions are actually about the glofish itself and not only the glowing capabilities. I need those few questions answered to get the whole thing about glofish, if u have any links, it would be highly apppreciated.

cheers
