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.
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.
If you havent figured me out by now, the only thing i AM serious about is AEFW's.
I also love my cats to death. here is a pic of Ike. Ike is 26 lbs and rides down a class 5 river in my driftboat with me, as well as rides with me in my truck everywhere and wont ever jump out........ikes a good kid
