Not photoshopped; the truth is far worse. While doing an image search, I learned that many fish are "painted" or dyed, which stresses them and shortens their life expectancy.

Juicing, or artificially coloring fish using paints and dyes, has become quite widespread in the aquarium trade. Yet most owners are unaware that their fish have been altered. You might be surprised, and appalled, to discover which fish are artificially colored, and how it's done....

... Coloring fish stresses them and makes them more susceptible to disease. Young fish that are not fully grown are often stunted by the painting process. Others are not killed outright, but contract disease as a result and die later.

Some methods result in mortality rates as high as 80%. Many of the survivors will have an abbreviated life span. Nine out of ten painted fish will lose their coloration within a matter of months.

if it looks too gaudy to be true then take down the name of the species and look at what it's supposed to look like.... these dyed parrots... look totally unnatural....

Many of the Parrots on sale here are artificially coloured using special dyes. Practical Fishkeeping has seen photographic evidence which shows the species being injected with coloured dye at multiple sites along the flank. Several injections of coloured dye are made over a period of hours, which produces a diffuse stripe of colour. After a day or so, this colour has spread to produce a fish with a more or less uniform base colour represented by the dye.

Very pretty ... but I suspect a bit of Photoshop at work here!
