Lots of people dye their dogs, but if its a natural colour and doesn't hurt them in any way, I don't see an issue.. I wouldn't do it though -__-

Yeah, I like animals in natural animal colors. But dyeing dogs is a lot different from stripping a fish of its slime coat and injecting it. Imagine the hell raised if someone shaved a brown chihuahuah and gave it pink hair implants or something. And I've just never understood why fish need to be dyed. They come in every color imaginable. If you can't find one type of fish in one color, there will certainly be another type that does come in that color.

Someone decided, they want a green white skirt and no other green fish, so they decided to make their own -____-

Exactly, its cruel to the utmost extreme. It shortens and harms the fishes life, and as you guys pointed out, if you dipped a cat in toxic pink dye to make it look " pretty", people would explode and it would be on the news and everything...just because they don't make noise doesn't mean they're stupid! In fact, they're probably smarter than most of the brickheads...

Well said, Diablo! And Fighter, I know, people can be so self-centered. It's like, but there are other green fish, why does it HAVE to be a skirt tetra? Seriously. *shakes head*

You said it, Fighter. And they didn't even dye the fruit tetras an unusual, hard-to-find color like purple or green, they dyed them orange-red so they looked just like a serpae tetra. Grrrrrr. If you're going to make them look like a serpae tetra, why not carry serpaes in the first place?!
