thats so freaky!

his eyes are so wierd..

question though.

is this like normal "glow in the dark"

eg. light from sourced is captured by the protien, then held onto? or does it just glow constantly?

It's tough to take pictures under black light but my photographer (son) is working on it. The wild gfp came from a cross between a gfp leucistic and a melanoid. That cross also produced normal wild type, gfp leucistic, and leucistic. Yes I am breeding some gfp to gfp.
