Could I feed a translucent fish food coloring and will it change color?
Question Date: 2011-01-27
Answer 1:

I'm guessing that you could see artificial color in a translucent fish. Scientists can see things like green fluorescent protein in translucent fish. The main problem I see is how to get the color into the fish without making the water so colored that it would hide the color in the fish. I don't know how healthy the fish would be after eating so much food color, but I expect it would live for at least a little while.

Best wishes,
