I think to cover everything about dyed fish, hybrids and glofish, either I change the title(as we're going beyond just dyed fish ) or make a new thread.

But I'll try to push through my plans anytime to make a new thread concerning the fish that were created through different processes which could have harmed them.

Goldfish are listed as often being dyed; can anyone post a photo? I have two twin-tailed goldfish that I just adore. I don't think they're dyed at all - they're orange Ryukins - but I would hate it if I somehow bought dyed fish. I also have Cory cats, and one is an albino. Again, though, I cannot see that either has been dyed. Is it mostly the albino strains that get colored?

Yes. Even clear-bodied species are vulnerable to that.
Here's an interesting thread for cories.

Unhappy

i'm really sad now, i just bought 4 parrot fish yesterday two pink ones a yellow one and a greenish-blue one. if i would have known that they are colorful due to cruelty, i wouldnt have bought them. they are my first fish.

are there dyed kribs does anyone know ? when i was looking to purchase a pair(of normal type) i looked in a few places before going with my favorite dealer in one store they had what they called "super red kribs" that have a very large area of pink up 3 quaters of the body much greater than the standard krib are these dyed or a simple case of selective breeding?

actully after extensively googling them it seems they are a different species( P. sacrimontis) to the common kribs ( P. pulcher ) that are just beging to appear in the hobby and very red varieties exist of common kribs also called super reds but these are not comonly avalible so not one for the dyed list, the shop did carry the mutant parrot ciclids thogh including a number of bright green ones and the eqully unattractive ballon mollies

Hi
Yes this is really disturbing and cruel but I just had one question...
I bought a betta and found that I really like them, so I plan on buying more. But I'm really concerned and bothered about this post, I swear to never buy fish from that list and any other dyed fish listed but I was wondering are betta's ok..as in are they dyed or not...
really concerned about my little betta

If you don't like dyed fish, don't buy them. If there isn't a trade for them, the company wont order them! simple as!
