Kaleidoscope gouramies are produced by using a dye laser.




A new fad in Hong Kong is having words, logos, or patterns tattooed onto fish. One tropical fish supplier in Hong Kong offers custom fish tattoos with sayings such as "I love you" and Chinese New Year sayings. He claims his fish are tattooed with dye using a special "low intensity laser" which leaves a permanent mark and does not cause the fish any pain.
As if he would know if the fish are in pain.

Where would you even find somthing like that? You would waste there money on that anyway. Me personnal I think the fish looks ugly now. I finally got to see those tetra's that are suppose to glow in the dark, I thought that was the biggest waste money, But you just changed my mind. That fish in the picture is now.

There is a fish that has been genetically modified. It's called a "Glofish". They used Zebra Danios for this.

Yes you are.
Dyeing fish is impractical. This should be banned as fish tend to live for a short time due to the effects of dye. Dye tend to make them more susceptible to lymphocystis, a viral disease.

Well, I don't know how cruel the zebra danio coloration is. They originally used it as a way to test water qualities in third world countries. They color the fish by using a gene from a sea anemone and injecting it into the eggs of the danios. It's all genetic, and as a zygote I don't think the fish feels any pain.

I do not agree with the chemical dyeing of other fish. I heard from my co-workers that the fish that are dipped in acid then in the colored dye only have about a 20% survival rate. Those are horrible odds. I steer everyone that wants to buy them away from the parrots.
