It sounds like the Rice Fish from the first article are ok. But the Zebra Danios from the second article sound like they're being used for a lot of testing...

Yeah, I guess that's what the process was initially developed for....Still not sure if I could support that though.....

I would never buy those fish that were developed for testing. I can't find anything wrong with the Rice Fish though unless they're used for testing also. Unless there are any side affects with the genetic modification...

I've heard that the ingections harm the fish.
The dye injections suffered by painted fish are not the same as Glo-Fish. They are NOT injected, painted, or dyed.

I'm not a Biologist or anything ... but wouldn't they have to attach the Jellyfish DNA to a certain place in the fish DNA?

A viral vector could be used for that purpose. Not sure exactly how it'd be done, but it'd have to affect the reproductive system as well (if people have gotten them to breed and the offspring, too, were glo-fish)
