Hiya and welcome abaord.

The only way to distinguish them is try familiarizing yourself with the natural strains of fish. If you saw a fish and you feel that it seems unnatural in coloration, try to either do a research or ask us, of course. We can help you determine that and you'll be able to save your cash from unscrupulous trades.:)
Try to observe the fish's appearance(more on coloration) closely. Most of the fish dyed have colors apearing brightly on their lateral line. Dye is not permanent and the fish dyed suffers a lot. Dyed fish are quite vulnerable to lymphocystis. And most of them do not last long this way.
Glad to see this thread is helping you and other fish enthusiasts.

Good luck.

Parrots are banned in my book. Any fish that has been genetically altered to provide entertainment for a human is just sick. Maybe its time to start dying people, dogs, cats, birds...??? Where are the morals behind something like that? There are a lot of sick and twisted people out there, and I think they should be subject to the same kind of treatment they offer animals and other people. Reap what you sow....
The hard part for me to understand is why the market for these animals hasn't completely died out enough for them to stop producing them? Can't any person with a brain see how inhumane this practice is? Sometimes people disgust me....and I have to say I'm ashamed to be human. We are the only species that spends all it's time destroying everything around us, even our own. If there is ever an end to mankind, it will be the fault of mankind.

I agree. If anyone ever watches "The Dog Whisperer" with Ceasar Mylan, there was an episode where he helped a lady who loved EVERYTHING pink, with pink rooms, pink decor, which included dying her dog pink. She she be banned from earth!

TBH i do think the ''powder puff'' (as they are called) parrots look really impressive, but to people who know abit about fish (all of the above for instance ) know that to modify in such a way cant be good for the fish
but to the ignorant as i said at top they do look impressive, people who know nothing are the saps whom will buy them cos they are 'pretty' to look at??!!!!

Goldfish aren't dyed. They have a tendency to change colors as they grow so you're alright.:)
No. People will not tell you that those are dyed fish and neither will those who don't know about fish. The best thing you can do is familiarize yourself with the appearance of dyed and natural selections.:)
