Course, Ctrl-Alt-Shift-L in Photoshop really makes the colors pop, but no more so than in real life. ;-)

The missus tutors the kids of a fellow who keeps a 75 gallon tank with Half Black Delta Tail Guppies and these gorgeous red velvet swords. Every couple of months he nets out and had been burying in his garden a half pound or so of them. I gave him some cories and now he gives his culls to me to feed to my Bushfish, and I kept out some of the best.
