He's beautiful Shelly! I saw a white one and fell in love with him but knew I'd get shot if I set up another tank....

Thank you! I couldn't resist him, his color is starting to darken up now can't wait to see what he looks like when he's more settled

Thanks, i managed to get a good look at his fins tonight when he flared, his dorsal is split and he has hole's in his tail! I'm not too happy about it as i paid a lot of money for him. I'm hoping plenty of clean water will heal him up.
