GFP visualisation in GloFish - (Oct/04/2006 )

Is anyone working with GloFish or any related fluorescent fish? Could you please tell me what kind of light you use in the aquaqrium tank for fluorescence visualization. Are these lamps commercially available? Thanks a lot....


I know with the glo fish a standard black light is suppossed to work well as the protein is highly expressed. In other transgenic you may need a much more powerful bulb as well as emission filter to see the fluorescence.
