Dyed fish

Just wanted to put this up and see if you guy's feel the same.
Found these cories on ebay just now. Absolutely disgusting, poor little guy's. Why do people feel the need to do this? Can't they just sell them the way they are? Really has annoyed me. As you can tell I haven't seen a dyed cory before. Click image for larger version

I don't like it either . Looks bad and hard on the fish , but there is a market for them....kids ! The same market for clown puke gravel , and all the weird ornaments....lol

Hahaha. Too grown up to love the sponge? I have to admit I have stuffed toys and action figures and pez dispensers. And I hid them in my Nemo tank painting as hut graffiti Lol. Click image for larger version

it can be 1 of two things IMO

1. they are trying to compete with the glow fish phase since the demand by younger kids think the colorful fish are cool and they can raise the price since what parent would deny there young ones a colorful fish . and that started experimenting with other species. I agree it's sickening

2. they are trying to compete with all the colorful fish in saltwater

but my best bet would be #1

They're trying to be the next big trend in aquatics. That big idea that corners the market and has all the kiddies running to the store money In hand.. weak fish die faster and they know parents don't want to listen to kids cry over dead purple corys so they run on out and buy more. Murica
