The saddest part[ if there is one?] is often a 'painted/dyed 'fish is cheaper then the natural version!
That speaks very poorly of the whole fish industry IMO...

Too many of these type fish really ;

Nah, I'm a Disney fan. I've just never liked Sponge Bob. The style of cartoon never really did it for me. I have stuffed animals and stuff all over. Heck, I believe in faeries.... They hide in fish tanks under driftwood, don't you know... The shy water ones do.

They sell the dyed loaches and tetras too at my LFS. Quite sad, and they're always dying and being replaced (as in, more often than the rest of the fish at my LFS ://)

Honestly I would ask for the manager and tell them politely like it is and why it is disgusting, and that if they are for humane treatment of animals to stand strong and STOP selling them.

The jellyfish gene Glo-fish are a little better except that for the most types of fish they use for that are fish that are a little cranky or edgy or fin nippers, or need to be in groups or don't get along in a peaceful community tank, and especially don't do well as one lone pretty purple fish. Intriguing science.

Tatooed fish

The corys and loaches are new ones I haven't seen before. More often then not around here when you see a dyed fish its usually a blood parrot with a heart tattooed on its side. Really a disgusting practice.

Totally agree, I thought I had heard of most but that is terrible. Luckily it is very rare here (I hope!).

Most sad for me to see them at chain stores. A couple years back I saw neon coloured POLKA DOTTED loaches. That had to have been the worse for me.

This is a friend on guppygourami's account:

Visited a fish store a while back that I hadn't been to before and I might've dunked the manager in a tank if I could.

Walked in and thought the store was well-lit and it was but not because of the lights. The fish were glow-in-the-dark. Goldfish, tetras, mbuna cichlids, it was absolutely horrifying.
