I know, it's just how some other things in the picture are also purple that shouldn't be that's making me suspicious. Plus, and I meant to say this earlier, I saw some of this seller's other auctions earlier, and a couple looked pretty photo shopped too. They ended, but they were there earlier. That's why I would say they colored it...

EDIT: wow, I said "earlier" 3 times in 2 sentences *facepalm*

The entire picture has a purple, which suggests to me that it's either under a light filter, or the color balance was messed with. Both of those take about five seconds to do in photoshop. I'm not a fish expert. But, in my opinion, that fish is probably not that purple. It may be a duller lavender, etc, though.

For the record I'm in art school and I do digital work for class. So while I'm not a professional, I'm pretty confidant about this. Let's say 92% confidant.

That's what I think too. I'm not in any art school or anything, but I'm pretty good at photo shopping with GIMP and it really is very easy to do.

I took two minutes to undo some of what I would consider obvious photoshopping with my own photoshop counter-attack. In my opinion, the fish probably looks closer to this:

Cute female. I agree she might need some work fin wise but if the price is right she could be worth the buy.

As for her color.. what does it matter? If she's coming from Karen's lines she's going to throw a wide array of colors anyways.

The breeder isn't Karen. It's someone called Antbla, unless Karen goes by that and Martinismommy on aquabid?

I didn't say she was coming from Martninsmommy... I said she was coming from fish bred from her line.
