Dyed with a dip or bath usually produces a solid color where the fish tends to be evenly dyed. Sometimes though there are only half way dyed. White skirt tetra that has been dyed in a bath.
Needle injection gives localized color, usually a line. Both dipping and needle injection only works on clear or pale colored fish, except for a few specific species. Same as the OP's fish.
Tattooing is much different then the others. It does not need the fish to be clear or pale so the dye shows through. Tattooing has is easily identified by color on the scales instead of in the fish. The patterns tend to be much more "creative" one can say.
Dyed and tattooing fish is illegal in the states. There are no laws though to stop the sale of dyed or tattooed fish that are imported.
is that what they do to the glo-fish? i think they are zebra danios are they not?? lol but ive never seen them do it to these tho .. i dont know much about it but i think it gets passed down genectically and when they die they ooze the colours out kinda nasty?? lol i have no idea.
