I can't tell you for sure about Tropica, but lots of regular fertilizer brands use dyes as a way to distinguish between products, both as a brand recognition thing and so people can know they have the correct product in the sprayer (if you are expecting blue liquid and it comes out pink you know you have a problem right away).

No idea. I did a cursory google search and the first stuff I looked at were proprietary dyes that didn't give a lot of information about what they actually are made of. Are you concerned?

Most fertilizer dyes are vegetable based and have no effect on anything (I have suspicions on the staining capabilities but no proof). I don't have any personal experience with tropica but I'm assuming they're using their own proprietary vegetable based dye and it's reactions would be similar to ones I've come acrossed in off brand ag additives.
