He gets fed Nutrafin pellets and some thawed bloodworms once a week. But I've only had him for a week, so I don't know what he was being fed before.

My babies start growing dragoning right after their other darker colors like red and blue come in right on top? However I have seen some of my marbles change and their dragon starts to come in I wouldnt worry to much :) He is really small and is still developing.

I just realized that this quote makes it sound like I only feed my fish once a week!

He gets fed the pellets every day.

Genetics has a lot to do with it also. Some only get a light layer of metallic and others it comes in thick. Give him a couple months and if he hasn't changed a lot then he probably won't. He's a handsome guy either way .

I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

I've seen white dragon HM's listed on aquabid but with the white ones isn't it hard to tell if they have the dragon scales or not?

I wouldn't have room for all of them! Wish I could, though. She has LOTS that aren't jarred yet!

The breeder had his mom and dad there, and you could see their dragon scales really well. And they were HUGE! His dad was about a year old. Not sure about his mom. They were both the same colouring as Pendragon. So I'm hopefull.

It doesn't matter if he gets his dragon scales of not, he's still really cute! I think he's gonna be gorgeous when he gets bigger! I'm just wondering if there's any specific timeline for the scales to develop, that's all.
