As I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.

Very good link... Thanks... though I would assume that most of us reading this post (or the link, for that matter) are already sensible enough not to support those horrible practices...
Good though not sure why gold Barbs are there?

The more i look at your tank the more i want your tank in my tank!
The white tetra is often one of those targeted for dying purposes. Even those not dyed appear pinkish because you can see the blood in their veins. I also had some several years ago but they remained quite pink with never any color loss so I don't think they had been dyed. Hard to tell on them, tho.
They are generally named strawberry tetra, blueberry tetra, grape tetra, or simply mixed fruit. The dyed ones look so darned fake I think it would be pretty obvious and the dye begans to go away generally before they can get sold and they're just plain ugly within a short time.
Hmmm, I've had my tetra for 3, maybe 4 years now. The colour has never changed or faded. Maybe it's just its normal colour?!
The purple one must have been dyed though. Could explain why it died. :(
