No GFP fluorescence?

I'm sorry, but I missed the original thread.  Did someone suggest or find 
that GFP synthesized at < 37C doesn't flouresce?

I've been working with GFP and zebrafish, which must be raised around 
28C, so I'm wondering whether this may be a source of my problems.

If GFP must be synthesized @ 37C, how does the jelly-fish from which the 
protein was originally from, produce it in the sea if it's ectothermic?
