Re: off topic(painting of fish)



What is truly disgusting is that they have started "painting" botias as
well. The orange finned blue botias show up as "painted blue" and "painted
purple" I refuse to buy them from the wholesaler, and they know why<G>
though I DO buy the unaltered blues for the store, same goes for the painted
fish, I tell the customers exactly why I don't have the "fruit loops fish
like Walmart" and usually they decide to look at a natural fish instead. The
whole painting thing makes me ill :-((
