I will second this. I saw a tattooed molly at my lfs this past weekend, and it stood out to me so much that I had to buy it. At first my roommate and I thought it was somehow a natural pattern, but as we were buying it the clerk told us that it is not natural. He also told us that the fish don't have nerve endings, so it didn't feel anything? But still, the stress of going through that for the fish must have been terrible..It's too bad that things like this are done to the fish, I feel bad that I supported this by buying the fish, but at the time I didn't know, all I can do now is feel good that it's in a loving home with 3 other molly's and a baby molly, and make sure it's taken care of as best I can.
