I received my first issue of this newsletter by e-mail today and thought you may be interested in this ridiculous bunch of information.



It is so difficult to think of some people being so cruel to these lovely fish.

Rose, you should sticky this topic AND post it on as many fish websites as possible. If I were not a respectful person and did not value this website and many members on it, I'd be REALLY CURSING these cruel people right now (the people who dye fish). I really can't express with words how horrible it is to me - I literally had tears in my eyes when I was reading the newsletter. Please everyone, spread the news as far and wide as possible. We cannot let this continue. I don't want to sound vengeful, but I really HOPE the people who torture fish will get exactly what they deserve. Just because fish are smaller than cats or dogs (or other pets) and live in water, does NOT mean they're less important and that they can be tortured. They live and feel as all live creatures on Earth. God ... I can't. Enough. (You've no idea how angry I am right now.)

Yes Isabella I do believe I can imagine, it made me sick to my stomach. Consider it "sticky-ed". I will see if I can get it sent to the other sites tomorrow.

I think this is horrible. I can't believe people would do things like this. > I doubt the people who do this would like it if someone did it to them, so why do it to a fish. ??? > Things like this make me really angry.

I saw some fish in my lfs once, and they were labeled "parrot" fish, and looked similar to these fish but were orange, and they also had some other fish that looked as if they had been dyed. I don't go there any more.

So far I've only seen painted barbs and some other kind of fish (I think painted glass fish) at my LFS (which is NOT good). But I've never seen anything like the fish in the Newsletter provided by Rose. If I saw fish like this at my LFS ... oh boy would the staff come flying out of the store ... or, if not, they'd have a huge argument with me anyway. I didn't yet have the courage to tell them (or rather yell at them) what I think about the painted fish they had and about the way they keep Bettas. But there will come a point where I will be no longer able to stand it. Though actually I saw a MIRACLE there once: they had ONE Betta in a 20 gallon tank with some smaller fish. Wasn't that a "paradise" for the poor fish (compared to what conditions Bettas usually live in)?

I got the same e-mail. At least the person in the story isn't advocating the sale of dyed fish. He was as sick as we are. Unfortunately, as long as people buy dyed fish they will be dyed and sold.

How cruel it is to paint fishes.. To bring an end to these sort of practices, we should propogate this message to all the fish forums/boards. We should make people aware of the kind of treatments, the fishes go through before being displayed in the fish stores.. I would never encourage these kind of things.. just for the sake of money..

...and when the 'unwary buyer' purchases such fish and takes them home, only to have them die after a short time due to the cruelty meted out to them by these fish-dyers, the buyer just goes back to the store to get some more "hybrid, pretty-little-fish"...right ??? > ...disgusting

This makes me so mad I can't even tell you. Well I could, but you all probably wouldn't appreciate my language. Oh boy if I ever meet someone who would do something like that to a poor, innocent fish....

Why do they dye fish? ???
Do the store keepers want to kill their fish !? >
Or do they not know the danger of it? :'(
