Sorry you missed my point, I really wasn't clear. I was actually saying I would spare the OP how it's done. I know you guys know!! I don't know if the OP does.

But we should get back on track. my goodness we get lost don't we? lol.

Yes I agree that the dye does usually wear off and No we really shouldn't buy these kinds of fish as it just encourages the breeders to make more. If we don't buy them, they won't bring in more. Post a pic of your tank if you can ashtreelogger, we'd love to see it.
