Albino Cory cats. Ugly as sin, but a great little clean up crew! Hahaha. They're almost cute when they're tiny..but well...mine, at 4 inches, made my grandma gasp and walk out of the room :p

I apologize, they're very difficult to photograph, always scurrying about!

And I agree- albino cories are pretty ugly!! And glocichlids? Really?? Not to put any fish higher on the scale than any other, but danios and tetras are hearty beginner fish that can take a lot of abuse, but cichlids?? Please say it isn't so!! I've seen pink kisser gourami (which sickened me) and fluorescent injected glass tetra (known as painted glass tetra), but not the cichlid!!

I've never seen a pink kisser gourami in person, but I thought that was a natural coloration? Could be dead wrong though.

Pink kissers are naturally pink, although there are places that tattoo things like hearts and polka dots and stuff, they do it to koi and goldfish too

And blood parrots. *shudder* why take such naturally gorgeous fish, and make them look unnatural and sickly, if they do survive, which the majority don't. I literally don't understand

People are impulsive, and most people that have 'fish tanks' don't expect their fish to live, they just buy more/ replace with fry and 'get rid of' the other one. My whole family are known aquaculturists and I am a known face to all the local pet stores. Make my counter point bud? Lol
