So I was at Fintastic the other day, and I came across these little critters. They caught my eye because of the sorbet colored bodies, and really, what’s more fantastic than fish that could pass for ice cream (or candy?) Yumsies!! Apparently they are genetically engineered, hence the awesome colors. Scientists are also trying to manipulate fish to change colors depending on the temperature of the water, and/or detecting certain pollutants in the water. I really wanted to buy some, but at $10/fishy, it might be a bit much.

You can read more about them here, on the National University of Singapore site, where they were originally created.
