Created by a joint project between Taiwan’s Academia Sinica, National Taiwan Ocean University and a private biotechnology company. The Taiwanese biotechnologists decided to modify these fish to produce a dazzling glow-in-the-dark display for aquarium enthusiasts.

The fish were genetically-engineered to glow brightly without the aid of ultraviolet lamps commonly placed in fish tanks. This glowing effect is produced by an organism using a chemical reaction known as bioluminescence, and is commonly used by sea creatures to communicate with one another.
