I'm sure Guppie Luver was speaking hypothetically,and that they hypothetically helped a hypothetical friend and of course really wouldn't do that in real life because it's illegal .

I bet if you google that and put in the word Japan, something will pop up. I remember recently seeing a story about fish that we're dyed-tatoo'd simple words, hearts things like that to make them popular. This was in Japan or China, I can't remember which - Japan, I think.

It does go on, and they have to work quick because the fish is out of water for this.

Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard

It's very funny they still have to patent a fish that breeds regularly. Implementation of that patent is rarely ever enforced.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Okay, you are so wrong and so obnoxious I don't even know what to say. I have 5 glofish currently, I have had them for a year, and I love them to death. Also, if you actually researched them and didn't take your info from a crap website then you would have seen that they are not dyed. These are healthy, happy fish that have transformed my community aquarium into something else.

Well, here's an open-minded and welcoming attitude!
Chill, no need to be insulting to folks who post .
The whole point of the forum is to learn and enjoy the hobby.
