    So I recently came across this picture and... IDK I'm kinda lost for words. Anyone ever seen one like this before? The pic is an older one apparently from some german site.

    I'd give up everything in my tank for it if that's true color.

    No really! Tell the scientists to stop with the dumb sheep and clone something worthwhile!

    I am sure it is real. I have personally seen one at an old LFS that is out of business now. It was 2.5" and they were asking $300 for it, too much for my likings. I have seen a few of them pop up from time to time and it seems that the wholesalers tend to hold on to them and release them right around Valentines day. It has been about 3 years since I have seen one though.

    When you say "they" are you just referring to all wholesalers or one specifically? I understand some are different than others, but I know of a few that might hold onto stuff until they have a buyer, but none that hold onto something for a holiday.
