Thread: Pink Toadstool?

  1. Exclamation Pink Toadstool?


    0 Not allowed!
    There is a pink toadstool leather that my wife saw on saltwaterfish.com she's been wanting to purchase once it's back in stock. I was in a coral shop Sunday and the guy that owns it was telling me that if it's pink there's a strong chance that it could be dyed. I wanted to get you guys' input on the matter. I'm not looking to purchase any dyed corals, especially at a premium price. Here's the link if you want to take a look at the photo http://www.saltwaterfish.com/site_11...ot_parent_id=4 . I've tried searching on the web for something like it but no such luck so far.

    Well I guess we can scratch that one off the list then. Maybe I'll look into a Tyree leather or something like that. Thanks for the input.

    Yeah it's a really wierd process according to the owner of the store. He was explaining that they take the corals they want to dye and place them in a dimly lit to dark tank for a number of weeks and then proceed to feed them regurlarly but with large amounts of food dye added. And then they'll have periods where they will drop dye in the water to be absorbed. All sounds pretty wild and kind of stupid to me. But I guess there is some demand for them if such a process takes place with such great detail. Sucks cause we really liked that one but neither of us wants a dyed coral staring back at us. So the search continues.....
