Is fish dipping permanent? Painted Parrot.

I bought a painted parrot fish. I read how they change their color. I want to know if the color is permanent or not?
Mine is green and about 1 inch. Will it still be bright green when it grows or will it fade?

The damage caused by artificially coloring these fish is permenent. The colors rarely stay bright longer then a few months. A dull dirty look is usually all that remains permently.

Painted fish

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Painted Parambassis ranga specimen. A needle was used to inject the pink dye in this example.


The term painted fish refers to ornamental aquarium fish which have been artificially coloured to appeal to consumers. This artificial colouring, also known as juicing, is achieved by a number of methods, such as injecting the fish with a hypodermic syringe containing bright fluorescent colour dye, dipping the fish into a dye solution, or feeding the fish dyed food.
This process is usually done to make the fish a brighter colour and more attractive to consumers. The colouring of the fish is not permanent, and usually fades away in six to nine months.
