dyed fish

I found this website about dyed fish. It has a whole bunch of info and a list and some pictures of the types of fish that are dyed.
I know there have been some topics and questions on this subject and thought this was interesting.

Yes, it is horrible. More people should read that site before purchasing fish. It's sad that it even occurs.

I had never even heard of dyed fish until now. That's so sad, I can't believe people really do that. I won't be buying from stores that carry them either.

Thanks for posting that link, it really helps with awareness of dyed fish!
For me whenever I read that list of dyed fish it makes me want to cry. Sometimes it is hard to tell if a fish has been dyed so that list is excellent.

Before you completely boycott your LFS's that carry dyed fish...I do suggest you talk to them first.

Tell them you don't agree with it, and that if they continue to sell such fish, they'll lose you as a customer.

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.

Re: dyed fish

I really despise this being done to fish, how sadistic can you get.

There should be more laws to protect fish, they are living beings ad deserve protection.

Thankfully my LFS is very protective of thier fish, they are activly against the dying of fish and every worker there is a fish fanatic and very knowlegable on all aspects of the aquarium.
