    Did you hear about hermit crabs?The about freeze them to death to force them out of their shells so they can put them in painted shells.Plus if they eat paint they're gills inside their shell swell up and thy die,and the dealers give you crappy little kits when you need about 100 bucks to care for them properly!Those !!@#!@ people are !#!^%%$!

    I agree. Animals should not be genetic altered just for our amusement. That totally wrong. I will never buy a genetic altered fish or animal.

    Has anyone seen the "tiger" platies?" I saw some at Petco today and figured they were probably tattooed (whoever did it did a very bad job) but there are so many platy color variants that I was not sure. The store doesn't sell any other tattooed or dyed fish.

    I have seen dyed fish that looked cool to me and I wanted them, hold on 1 second though, I was about 5 or 6 years old then. most fish are naturally much more beautiful than dyed ones, the problem is not serious hobbyists like most AC'ers, its the people that don't know any better than what their LFS tells them. Spreading awareness of dyed fish probs around the AC doesn't do much good because I'm sure everyone here acknowledges it anyway. Well this is an old but still valid thread, thankfully I havent seen any dyed fish for sale around here for years.
    No matter how much I learn or know I'm still gonna be a NOOB, but that doesn't mean I'm an idiot!

    The point in this thread is that if we stop buying them, the stores will stop carrying them. That is what is meant by "do not support dyed fish." There is no reason to purchase dyed and mutilated fish when there are so many others to purchase. Stores continue to order what they sell the most of.

    My store used to carry blueberry tetra's. Half the color was washed out of them before they were even purchased. I talked with the manager of the store about the dying process and the stupid tattooing of fish and she was happy to stop ordering them.

    The white skirt tetra is not a dyed fish but the other tetra's are dyed from this fish. White skirt is a natural fish color.



    They actually appear pink.

    I agree the white skirts are not dyed fish, they are albino blackskirt tetras so even though the species name is the same, they are both "naturally" colored fish. I think i added to the confusion on this last year

    They are a favorite for dying though, not unlike albino corys and oscars etc

    Im happy to see people taking a stand against buying unnaturally colored fish, kudos
