The Aquatic Store
We have joined PFK in the fight to ban dyed and tattooed fish .
The forced colouring of fish usually takes the form of dye injections at key points of the body. Transparent fish, like Indian Glassfish or Kryptopterus catfish, have long been preferred because their tissues don't interfere with or mask the intensity of the colour.
The process can involve the fish being dipped into a corrosive solution first, to remove the protective mucous layer. Once 'stripped' this way, the fish are then soaked in dye before being subject to another irritating chemical which stimulates the return of mucous - trapping the dye close to the tissues.
Advances in our understanding of stress and pain (and now accepted by all but a fringe of the fishkeeping world) make it clear that the procedure is not a pleasant one. On top of any immediate distress and suffering, the wounds caused by injections leave the fish exposed to attack by pathogens. It also heightens the occurrence of specific illnesses such as Lymphocystis - perhaps through infectious needles, or lowered immunity as a result of stress.
50 more tanks just added all with there own filters .
We believe that running large amounts of aquariums on one filter is wrong.
Thats why we want every tank at The Aquatic Store to have its own filter and not be connected to any other tank .
