Hm... It's kinda hard to tell from that picture. Could you post a sideview of him flaring? But he's very cute regardless!

Maybe Dragon scale but definitely Plakat. He is pretty!

after like 300 pics, i finally got this. I tried to get him to flare, but he did it once, freaked out and hid in the back of the tank. kept swimming away after that.... obviously not a fighter! haha

Looks like a Plakat to me.
Maybe she meant dragon scale?? Not sure if that's his coloring or not though

Looking at pictures of Dragon Scales, I am being more and more convinced hes a young dragon scale. She even said something about getting swirls on his side when he gets bigger?

he's a beautiful PK, looks a lot like Caligula, the PK i just got last week, although he has more green in his blue tones.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.
