I agree, that's horrible. :( But are you sure the owner of those fish did that? I think they can actually be purchased that way. They do that type of tattooing on balloon mollies and other types of fish too. It's sad.

I hope I don't get flamed for this. At first I thought tattooing fish was OK* until I researched it more.

* The reason I thought tattooing fish was OK was because cats, horses, dogs, people and other animals are tatooed.

Ya, I just posted this.

Too many fish, in too small of a tank.

And whoever drew, or tattooed those fish, should be kicked in the teeth.

I could see why you would think that, not being shown this kind of footage before. but w/ cats, dogs, horses, cattle, etc, their tattoos are not for decoration purposes like in us humans. also, these animals are HUGE in comparison to the fish. and I know that the fish's scales are pretty tough, so when these ppl are tattooing the fish w/ these tacky designs it has 2b REALLY painful for them.

I just want 2 say that this is a topic that can get heated really quickly and threads have been closed before, so even though I know most (if not all of us) agree that this is despicable we should keep level heads.

About a year ago, in the UK, there was lots of talk about making certain breeds of goldfish illegal (such as the bubble eye) because it was cruel, but the same rport that had prompted these political debates said that tattooing a goldfish was ok. Weird right?

When it comes down to it, after a lot of thought on the matter I'd say that tattoing a fish, and therefore any animal, against its will is wrong. Not to mention tacky. Those fish looked rubbish!

I've seen where quite a few come from Hong Kong where it's very popular. The slime coat is stripped before the tattoo is administered. I just don't think it's a very smart thing to do to fish...I'm not for it.

It never occured to me that people would tatoo goldfish. I have tatoos and I can tell you that they don't feel that great to get. I can't imagine how a fish feels.

Those fish are super pretty, too (if you can overlook the tatoos). Especially that chubby faced ranchu. So sad.

i'd like to tattoo some of the artists!! not the way they're doing it.. but the good old fashioned branding way with the hot iron.. a pretty nice "REJECT" branding on their forhead would look smashing.. don't you think? :exactly
