There is a Singapore distributor on facebook - Kawaii Opae Ula on facebook that feeds redness enhancement pellets. What are your thoughts? I am more of having a variety of colors and not favoring bright red ones. Of course if you own them you can do what ever pleases you, even to feed enhancers etc.

That's interesting, do you have a link? I don't agree with culling where the unwanted colours and markings get destroyed but if you want to breed deep red and patterns etc have a separate tank to house the offspring that don't meet the requirements or sell them :)

I wonder what it is, mind you if they import direct from Hawaii like they say they do then they will be deep red anyway. Just noticed they want $50 per Alpha Opae ula

Lots of products that enhance the color. Here is an example.
