LFS are in business for the money, and if people want dyed blood parrots and tetra, the LFS will supply them.
The less demand, the less they'll carry.
I agree, and the sad truth may be that some LFS' may not even know that is how some of these fish are "made".

excellent site. good to see there are others concerned enough to do something about it. like said previously, the lfs is in it for money and at some point a love of the hobby. you can not blame them, the best you can do is to make it known and inform people. the more people know the better. and the less will be sold and in turn the less fish killed.

I have incountered store management and owners that maybe unaware of this practice.
Well, considing there lack of knowledge of modern fishkeeping I surmized that it would be possible that they wouldn't be aware of this either.
