Hmmm. Interesting. So glofish were dyed at some point...cool. I'm glad they don't do this but, why didnt they do this to bettas?

Because Bettas are already colorful and, according to that website, they do it when their developed, by injecting the dye into their skin with a needle and putting them in a bath that dissolves their slime coat and putting them in a dye bath )= I don't think it's possible to genetically engineer Bettas with dye... Most that get this done die instantly from stress... Fortunatly they don't really do it with Bettas...

I knew something about the glofish was genetically engineered, but wow, I wonder how they make the dyed colors genetic!

The glofish were never dyed, ever. They changed the genes to give them that color. It is all on their website.

Good, I'm glad fish for the most part don't get dyed. Although my tetras are nipping at my bettas fins see my thread in the Accessories area for more info...
