Great point Rod
Heaven forbid we keep fish in water they like and give them good quality food so they develop into their stunning natural beauty.


I have to ask on the back of this.
How many people want "Blue" rams to have more red in them?

Personally, I like wild blues. Of course, I'm the poster child for everything that doesn't sell commercially! Any new fish/product that I like doesn't sell well and disappear from the market.:confused: Marketers could save millions of $ by discovering what I like and not bringing it to the market.:rolleyes:

I would guess that the majority of active members on this site would be fans of natural colours and especially blue's. I definately am.

I am with you on that. I had my first real look at them on Saturday and they are ugly. They look like someone spraypainted them metalic powder blue from each side and missed the stripe down the nose.

(Still going to buy them because the wife likes them :biggrin:)
