Well, unless the people are aware of the cruelty involved in dyeing and other methods, then we can't really blame them for their astonishment.

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.

You can't really blame the people that buy them, it's the ones who dye and distribute them. Sometimes it's also the pet store associate who thinks it looks pretty cool, and passes his "observation" onto the customer.

Customers don't know any better... the vast majority of us ventured into a pet store for the first time at some point and had no idea what all of the characteristics of these majestic looking creatures were. We didn't know any better... and at that point in time we were the prime target for the distributors of dyed and genetically modified fish.

And no, I'm not trying to justify buying them at some point in time... I was too cheap even before I knew about the cruel processes used.

Of course, we don't blame customers especially those who are quite new to the hobby.:) But we do blame distributors and aquarists who already knew about this yet they buy dyed fish because they think they're beautiful.
IMO, it won't be an excuse for those who knew about dyed fish yet they claimed they don't know anything about this.

I have stickied this thread to raise awareness among beginners the consequences suffered by these poor fish and the consequences they'll get for buying fish.

Hi fellow members.

Here is the link to know everything about dyed fish. Apart from dyed fish, glofish information is also imprinted for reference.
An article done by Dr Peter Burgess and Dr Stan MacMahon on dyed fish.

Very, very disturbing. Why can't people leave nature alone? Next they'll be dying white cats and white dogs :(

You know what the definition of hobby is: something of interest that is going to cost you lots of money!

they already do that...you can take your pet to the salon and they will dye their hair pink or purple or whatever...it washes out in a couple weeks tho...

"everything happens for a reason...the hard part is figuring out what that reason is."

I don't think cherry barbs are often dyed so you're safe to obtain them.:) Same goes to the lemon tetras.
Dyed tetras are usually the albino morphs of the Black Skirt Tetras. The fluorescent coloration runs along the lateral line of the fish. On the side note, it is easy to distinguish dyed fish if you familiarize yourself with the natural breeds. For instance, albino Black Skirts are completely white so those with unusual colorations on their backs are dyed. No one can breed fish with colorations running only on the lateral line.
