    hey guys,

    2day i saw a pink colt coral in store...
    looked fantastic, however i have never heard of a pink colt coral...
    it just stank of being dyed?
    could someone correct me if if there is a actually pink version??
    cos i have the dull brown version and have never heard of one in pink.

    just to be sure, i am damn sure its a colt coral as i have a very large brown piece of it in my tank currently..
    they are identical.

    I purchased an awesome pink colt coral about 6 months ago. The colour slowly faded and it is now more of a peach colour. Not the same as a brown colt but not pink at all...

    How pink is it? They have been known to be dyed. Have a read here - DyedCoralFAQs

    Bright pink and yellow colt's are always dyed. We do get them, but found that as Manic stated they fade away and end up lighter than normal colt's but not a bright pink or yellow any more.
    Colt's are lucky in that they can withstand this abuse better than most corals.

    PS. We @ Pet Stop and as I understand from some other shop owners, do not condole the import of any dyed corals, but do get them mixed in with our normal order.
