Correct glofish breed true to te color, and were created for detecting polluted water, hence the re sale laws on them. Other fish especially glass catfish are injected with a dye that dosent last the entire life of the fish

So that's like a dye injection or paint or something? Do they cost much more? How can you tell - just colours and shapes that aren't natural?? Thanks for the pic as well.

Sorry to seem so thick on this. I guess I'm still getting my head around that it is actually done. I had assumed it was from a decade ago or something and never took off.

Yes. People literally inject dyes into fish using needles or lasers. I found this picture very sad and ironic.

They drew flowers on them for valentine's day.... hard to miss from a regular fish

Basifally, they dip the fish in a chemical to strip the slime coat. Then use a tattoo gun to draw on it, and then throw it back in a tank.

If im not mistaken only about 30% of the fish survive the procedure.

Many people have argued that fish don't feel pain. That is a completely false, cruel idea. I never swear, but I think this would be as close to an appropriate time as any.

Including scientists. Truthfully, we have no idea whether fish feel pain or not.

Of they have a functioning nervous system, they most likely feel pain. I have observed it, and science is finding increasing evidence that they do.

Except that they don't have nociceptors which are the pain receptors. Hence the disagreement.

How have you observed it?

Interesting...I never knew that. I observed my injured zebra danio, and it certainly seemed to be in pain. Nevertheless, the dyed fish still have their slime coats removed, are exposed to disease through open wounds, and are kept in horrible conditions.

What has actually been found is that they are likely to not feel "pain" but are likely to feel heightened alarm which is all the same stressful. We really have no way to be sure but this seems the most likely right now after all of the research done on the topic.
