I'm so happy these things are banned in the European community
All possession is prohibited. I heard a petshop in the UK was raided for possession of 100 glowing Brachydanio rerio.
But still, who is the evil brain producing this?
The ban is accidental (GM animals are banned here) and not to do with cichlid health or protection.
Sadly examples of real crulety to cichlids (die injected inc flouresent dies, extreem line bred fish, highly selected mutant lines etc) can be imported and sold here legally in the UK/European community.
Funny realy a raid on Glo Zebra danios that I guess cause no harm to anyone.
I tend to wonder where the victim is in "crimes".
I guess in this case the shop owner who lost money and the fish that were no dought destroyed.
Where is the victim in flouresent cichlids being sold legaly?
Is my revulsion just a emotional thing?
I guess yep I am glad I will not see these in my LFS but then that is cold comfort when I see what else is being sold there.
As to the brain behind em.
Erm given in the first poste?
Taiwan's Council of Agriculture in collaboration with the Academia Sinica (Taiwan's national research academy).
Interesting that no individuals seem to want to take the credit for this?
All the best James
