"I just wanted to say "thank you" for including a section about the cruelty of keeping painted fish. I never knew of such a thing until one summer when I was working at PetCo (college summer job) in the fish room. I didn't know much about fish then, I was just starting out, I loved the colors on the painted glass fish, but then a customer told me that it doesn't happen naturally, (which I figured, but didn't want to believe). I had no idea that is how they do it though. Plus, I thought the only species that was done to was glass fish, I had no idea that there were so many more species."

"Thank you so very much for your quick, thorough response, Keith. I get the sense that helping novices out really is a labor of love for you."
