Awesome chailosi! I have 3, and can't for them to reach full coloration. They are just starting to show chartreuse!

thanks!
i bought all of them as hopeful females, however it seems the obliquidens and chailosi are battling it out and showing it a bit. their colour! gosh, striking! they really are having a dominance battle, but thankfully not too rough, so cool.
here's the obliquidens flashing come colour (way way much more than when i first got it!)
