Possibly dumb question

OK, I'm a newbe on LOL, so please be patient ...

I'm confused about the discussions and posted info on the blue botia (Botia modesta.) Some seem to suggest that the fish are dyed which seems plain-out cruel to me. Others seem to indicate it's a natural color. A few of the photos in the index show a much more neutral color for the species. So what is correct? It seems like a neat fish, one I'd like to have, but not if it's been injected with something.
