    Awwe shoot, that's so sad that someone would do something like that in the name of profit... Can't say I'm surprised that they would though. I certainly won't be buying any more of those poor fellows, or for that matter buying any colorful fish without making sure that they have not been injected with dye. Thanks for all your help!

    I came across an article not to long ago mentioning how this dying fish trend is actually growing. It became popular out of no where, then slowly faded for a decade, now it's storming back. Experimenting with different dyes and fish. My question is, who the hell is buying enough of them for them to make a profit? Looking on all forums, they are condemned. People who mistakenly bought them, and aren't retarded, realize what they are after research and never buy them again. A lot don't even go back to that store if there are other options around.
    There has to be a way to stop this? Even if not on a mass scale, start store by store with complaints. I've never come across this problem, as my LFS wouldn't accept them because they would be overwhelmed with avid fishkeepers denouncing them lol

    Most beginners don't know they have painted fish, until they get sick shortly after purchase, and come online looking for help...
