Cool. Colored fish are really expensive at the pet store.

lol, thanks, they actually used to sell gold fish in bait stores when I was younger. Maybe they still do in some places. I thought that wasn't smart because you don't want to release non-native species in lakes, etc.

author

with the old feeder goldfish, wasn't really a problem, as they weren't too smart. Any that got loose were quickly eaten by the sport fish. They also take a fair bit of time to grow large enough to be a problem...

Now, take your current asian carp and you have a problem. Faster growing, 'smarter', and much more aggressive. they can quickly decimate a local diverse fish population.

I agree and although I personally don't have a problem with folks using gold fish in bait stores, I have seen a lot of opposition to it.

author

I wonder what the long term effects are... gold fish are pretty hardy, but breathing that stuff may not be good for them. less of a problem in bait fish. more of an issue for pets.

Presumably, after a few weeks, they would return to their normal color.

Thank you, great question. Indeed, the dye isn't permanent and the company of course stands by the commitment to keep the highest standards relating to the product being eco-friendly.
