    Thats no different then those 'painted glass fish' you see at pet stores. Glass fish have clear bodies, and some pet suppliers carry glass fish that have a stripe of bright paint injected along their spine. Pretty cruel if you ask me, especially considering that I've never seen one that hasn't been diseased due to the painting process.

    Neat. But, I have to agree with Indiana Gardener, a bit tacky xD. Though, I feel sorry for it.

    DavyJones, I completely agree with you. I haven't seen one in person, but it's kind of cruel.

    If animal cruelty laws applied to fish (which they dont) painting and "tattooing" fish would be illegal.

    IMO, this is one of the worst aspects of the aquarium hobby..
    worse even than goldfish bowls..(which should also be illegal)..

    about half the fish that undergo this procedure die from it..
    they have to be taken out of the water, put on a towel or tray, and injected with dye with a large needle..if some die, who cares right? they are just cheap fish..

    its pathetic and inhumane..
    just attempting making living things "more interesting" to try to sell more of them...
    they arent interesting enough as Nature designed them?
    we have to "improve" them?..trust me, its not an improvement..its a major step down.

    its done only to make more money..

    its terrible, and I wish it could be stopped..
    but as I said, there are no animal cruelty laws that apply to fish..
    animal cruelty laws are pretty much "mammals only"..fish need not apply.

    so idiots who paint and tattoo fish to sell them are free to commit these crimes with impunity..

    dont even get me started on the Parrot cichlid..
    Dr. Frankenstein at his worst..

    He should get a glofish instead. They have an extra gene. Tatooing seems very cruel to me.
