I guess I will have to follow suit. There is too much that I would like to say about that guy, but this is a family oriented forum. (that's a win? how so?)

What I find completely hypocritical is that the SPCA will confiscate chicks that have been dyed but tattooing a fish is OK? I'm not saying dying small birds is OK, but it definitely seems to be more humane then tattooing a fish. I imagine they must remove them from the water for this similar to the painted fish.

I moved this to the Lounge. The fish that they are speaking of are Freshwater Fish, but I think it's an issue that Freshies and Salties need to be aware of.

Just to be fair to the SPCA, they would've confiscated them if they'd found out it was illegal. But after they did their research and found it IS legal, what could they do? Not much.

That guy who said the fish "seems healthy" and he finds nothing wrong with it...

And the pet store owner for even accepting those fish...
