thanks I was def hoping he looked like the pic but still luv him. Its amazing how much lighting changes their appearance. I guess it doesnt help his scales r shiny so the light reflects right off them. I also noticed today he has blue eyes :) .
the best part is hes getting more comfortable he doesnt hide as much . As a matter of fact he is at the front of the tank waiting for me in the a.m. every day his colors seem to get deeper. I guess hes happy.
