Color intensity of GloFish makes for colorful fish wall decor 

By looking at the video and the color chart above you can easily see creating artwork in ceramic for this fish would use many primary colors from the color wheel. Choosing complementary colors would be the primary objective so that the colors of the fish have an even balance and flow. This would be a fun ceramic fish wall art project to do!

GloFish is a proprietary and trade-marked brand of genetically engineered fluorescent fish. There are actually a variety of different GloFish on the market. Zebrafish was the first GloFish available in pet stores and is now sold in bright red, green, orange-yellow, blue, pink and purple fluorescent colours. Recently' Electric Yellow,'' Sunburst Orange,'' Moonrise Pink,'' Starfire Black,'' Cosmic Blue,' and' Galactic Purple ' coded tetra or Gymnocorymbus ternetzi,' Electric Green ' tiger barb or' Puntius tetrazona' and' Glo-Rainbow Shark' or' Epalzeorhynchos frenatum' have been added to the list.

The rights to GloFish belong to Spectrum Brands, Inc., which acquired GloFish from Yorktown Technologies, the original maker of GloFish, in May 2017.

After two years of research, GloFish was launched to the United States market in late 2003 by Yorktown Technologies. The U.S. has carried out a government environmental risk assessment. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which has authority over all genetically modified (GM) products, including zebra fluorescent fish, since it considers the inserted gene to be a drug.

Examples of sources of fluorescent protein genes include GFP (Aequorea victoria, jellyfish), GFP (Renilla reniformis, sea pansy), dsRed (Discosoma, mushroom coral), eqFP611 (Entacmaea quadricolor, sea anemone), RTMS5 (Montipora efflorescens, stony coral), dronpa (Pectiniidae, chalice coral), KFP (Anemonia sulcata, Venus hair anemone), eosFP (Lobophyllia hemprichii, open brain coral) and dendra (Dandra)

Fluorescent zebrafish has also been used for further experimental research. Alterations in the genes of the zebrafish have given the organism the potential to fluoresce as a bio-indicator. This genetic potential has been used to detect pollutants and other chemicals. Chemicals that mimic natural estrogens have well established effects on vertebrate reproductive systems, usually acting as endocrine disruptors, and GloFish fluorescence is used to detect estrogen levels. Researchers have found that muscles such as the heart are more affected by estrogen than by the liver. Therefore, the use of GloFish may provide insight into endocrine disrupting chemical behavior.
