I might be wrong but I'm pretty sure this is when they inject the color under their skin. :-( Extremely painful for the fish

This is just an albino Black Skirt Tetra with color injected into it. They give them new names like "fruit tetra" so people wouldn't think these fish were color injected, which is very painful for the fish. I consider it animal cruelty.
