Cosmetic Surgury for Fish



This link covers an article in "Fish Love" magazine about how to perform cosmetic surgery on fish! We all know pet fish are snazzier with tattoos or docked tails.
What bothers me most about the instructions are the total disregard for how the fish might feel about this. He's treated like a plant getting pruned. No concern about frightening or hurting the little guy. What's wrong with some people?

This is a horror story.
Very nice fish illo though!

Thanks, Linda,
I almost posted the picture without the back story, since it was an unhappy one. Then I figured that the more people knew about this, the less business the fish hackers will have.

I'm glad you posted the back story. Otherwise I would have thought you had some very scary instincts and I would not let you near my goldfish.
