ok, so I am writing this thread to raise awareness for fish that have been dyed. Now many people would say, "how do you dye fish?". Now, there are many ways fish can be dyed. One of the ways is injecting fish with a needle and adding the dye underneath the skin of the fish. This results in artificially coloured fish. Glassfish are a very popular option to dye many colours. Why? Because they are transparent. They will inject coloured dye into the fish and sell them as 'painted glassfish'. people buy these fish with no clue that they are dyed (hence this post). Another way is soaking them in dye. The fish though will eventually lose its colour leaving most people puzzled. THESE FISH HAVE THE HIGHEST MORTALITY RATES! THEY WILL ONLY LIVE HALF THE LIFE OF A UNDYED FISH OF THE SAME BREED! And to add to all that, they are then shipped all around the world causing the fish stress. If stores are to sell dyed fish they should at least say that. PLEASE CHECK FOR THIS WHEN YOU ARE BUYING FISH FROM A STORE. if the store does NOT say that their fish have been artificially coloured either write them a letter or tell the manager. I AM STRONGLY AGAINST DYED FISH. I AM WRITING THIS TO RAISE AWARNESS FOR THESE FISH.
THIS IS NOT HOW YOU TREAT ANIMALS
