Is there a name for this type of coloring?
I just bought a new veiltail, the first fish since my Fabio died almost a year ago. He is very pretty and I thought him to be a bi-color with some cellophane along his tail. His body and part of his fins is a light goldfish orange and the ends of the fins are a creamy white.
However, I've noticed that in sunlight or when at the right angle, the white areas on his fins and some of his scales glow a neon purple. It looks like he is in ultra-violet light, with it glimmering like that. Is there a name for this? A highlight, perhaps? I can't really get it on camera yet but I am trying.
