I had no idea it was so common to dye tropical fish. Is it usually not noted they're dyed?

Hi and welcome aboard, ChemGirl.

Pet stores and other distributors do not tell you they're dyed however, with research, you'll be able to identify them.:) Dyed fish are often labelled as 'colored <name of fish>'.:)

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.

My LFS told me about the parrots without having to ask. I haven't seen them in a while but I don't make it in very often anymore. I did see them in Walmart today and they looked like puffers that couldn't deflate, really kinda sad but then again you have to consider the store and the condition of most of their fish.

Yes.

Thanks to the imagecave.com, file not found. Here's the picture about dyed glass fish.

Credit will still go to the PFK, of course for the image.:)

I'd like to make clear of a fish that might confused you.
Glofish-details and pics are available in this thread.

As for Glowlight danio(Danio choprae), information is available here. Along with this pic.

Dyed fish never look as good as their natural looks. You can find many different colors of fish that are not dyed that can give you great viewing pleasures and the satisfaction that these fish werent tortured
