    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. :(

    They are genetically altered with I think it is jelly fish DNA . That is where the color come from. They will breed true, but it is illegal to sell any offspring as the are copyrighted.

    They do the process of making them glow so they can copyright the species variation.

    Perhaps a stupid question, but, they don't do that kind of thing to goldfish, do they?
