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>'.:)

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.:)

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
