    Yup, its sad to see, for our stores they can only sell large fish like pacus, oscars and cichilids as babies, so they are less then a inch now. Though due to many efforts we have managed to ban dying in most stores. :eek:

    Blueberries are in-fact dyed but if your in the oscar market I would buy a tiger oscar provided you have the room. Just my 2C though.

    Because most people are ignorant to the practice and continue to buy them thinking they're naturally those colors. Or, they know, but they don't care. If the fish are selling, the people who "manufacture" them are getting money so they'll keep doing it.

    Pretty much the same reason why fish like iridescent sharks and pacu are still being sold.
