Funny how every one says common blue/reds are boring. Maybe to us they can be at times. I recently bought a peachy VT.. The pet store lady was quite pleased that I got him (and medicine) and said he's been there for maybe 2 weeks. I think bright reds and blues are more popular since they pop more.
Mr V, I think it'd be super awesome to have veils with those vibrant marble colourings, and the koi colored ones. I love white bodies with bold patches.. Are you planning on crossing veils with HMs/plakats to get new colourings?
