/sigh I've also seen ADF's done up like that. I believe it was through injection. What ever happened to admiring a fish for its natural colors? I know koi, goldfish, and bettas are bred to have different coloration, but that is still incoded in the fish's DNA. This is just.... ya beyond words...
It is sad.. I love naturally landscaped tanks, the plants and rocks.. and naturally colored fish go great in it. These here.. just not right. To inject the fish is stressful, and it is just way too much. How about spending the money these companies spend to dye fish, and use it to educate people on proper care of them.
Breeder so I have too many to count and too many named to list here!
+ a million. I don't mind glofish, since that's a genetic mutation rather than an injection or being fed dyed food (I still don't think I'd own them), but the methods of dying things like glassfish, and tattooing fish (done in China) are absolutely barbaric.
I work at a LPS and my boss's sister recently brought in a bag of tattooed white molly's for our store and it disgusts me... What's worse is that people buy them left and right. Kids especially love it as the fish have little hearts on them or say "Love" (which is ridiculous I think) and they sell like hot cakes. I hate it. We also sell Fruit Salad tetras which are dyed pink and blue and my boss did get a few dyed Parrots like in this video once... luckily he does feel sympathy for the fish and we make sure we let people know that they will fade as they mature so that it isn't a surprise and people know what they are getting. But I still hate it. But where I don't buy the fish, there isn't much else I can do except educate the customers.
