"My 3 year old daughter desperately wanted a fish so the family troops off to the pet store and buys - you guessed it - painted glass fish. I thought, "Wow, pretty fish." [It] never occurred to me the terrible things that are done to make them look like that. Now after [an] awful heart-wrenching morning explaining to my daughter her fish is in heaven with God, after only a week, I decided to look up these fish and see what I did wrong. Well I figured it out, my mistake was not researching what fish I was buying. A hard lesson learned at the expense of my daughter. I will never understand how people can justify hurting another creature solely for profit. Thanks for all the info on these lovely but mistreated little fish."
