Yep that is riduculous. I used to get the neon tetra's thinking that was natural color them to have the neon strip. Well the stripe faded within months and asked the lfs about it. Yep they're dyed too. I quit getting them.

It is a shame, the parrot is also a man made hybrid and now they are colored.

The colored tetras are usually done in china where they grab the fish and inject them with a needle. they have a horrific 90% mortality rate on them but of course... people keep buying them so they keep making them. it is friggin sick.
