Okay, I understand that females don't have the "pretty" long flowing fins, or that they are not super vibrant like healthy males are....
But I have not ever seen an ugly female. Sure, my four youngsters have little to no color, but they are not ugly and they are just young. Rose is going red/pink on her fins, with a white body (ooo ahhh), Marge is going dark blue for fins, her sister Tina is getting medium blue/purple fins, and Zebra has almost clear fins with a hint of gold tinge (heh?) o_O And I think when they are older they will be mighty pretty!!!
so.... where do people get the idea the females are ugly and not worth anyone's time to own? Is it because of how they look when they are in stores (young, stripes, brownish/yellowish/blahish)?
(sure worth MY time
seeing them transform....)
