Its fine. the dying is a horrible process because there is a 50%+ mortality rate on the fish but after that process they are fine.

As long as you've had yours I wouldn't worry about returning it as long as you are able to provide it a proper home.

Fish dying is a very controversial subject. They also tattoo parrots and cut off their tails to make them heart shaped! I feel so bad for all the abused little parrots. Other fish like flowerhorns suffer the same horrific mutilation processes. They also dye baby bunnies and chickens for people to give their kids for Easter!
