They can have variations such as more white on the face like mine, more of a pink color than red, or darker coloring along the fin edges. Just google image search them and you'll see what I mean

they are a great looking fish but something to note is that pigeon bloods can pepper up (get black spots) quite heavily in a tank with a dark substrate and background.

and if you're buying pb's try to choose ones with the pattern all the way down to the tail (like the ones in the photo). in some fish the pattern may never fully develop, even when they reach adulthood.
