Thanks. Chard said the top two are red dragons (one was supposed to be a snow dragon but she obviously colored up during shipping which I find strange) and the third is a for dragon. The red dragons have some spots on the top of their heads, both have the same mark right on their noses and the first one has a few more spots between her dorsal and her head that you can see in the picture. It reminds me of koi markings and I really really hope she keeps them!
I finally found an actual turkey bastor today. Before I had those little things that they use to suck boogers out of babies noses (gross, I know, but I am not sure what they are called but they were new so they were clean!). Our Walmart SUCKS at restocking stuff. I tried looking for a turkey bastor for months and they finally had one, just ONE. But I got it and it is the perfect size for the QT tanks. I wasn't about to use the same siphon for the new girls tank (defeats the purpose of QTing) so I bought an 8foot airline tube and cut it in half so I can siphon the water out of two tanks at one time because the tube is small and doesn't siphon fast, and then got the turkey bastor to suck out poo because the airline tubing is flimsy and hard to move around to get the poo out.
Its not a great system and it takes awhile, but its difficult to remove the QT tanks because its a right fit to get them in there, and it is only temporary. Plus, I'm against 100% changes because its just unnecessary stress. I haven't ever done 100% changes on Lotus or Stella's tanks except when I switched them to the new QT containers and they're fine. I still do 3 or 4 50% or larger changes per week and I get out all the poo, plus they don't let food sink so I don't have to worry about that.
Anyways, I'm a little concerned because there seems to be some hostility between the girls, especially from Lotus and Stella. They have gotten used to each others presences but they did quite a bit of flaring at the new girls, especially Stella. Plus, they try to attack me through the front of the tank glass for some reason. They seem to try to "get at" each other a little but Stella and Lotus definitely are more aggressive than the newer girls. The new girls for some reason seem to be aggressive towards me 0_0 but I'm their friend, I feed them!! Lol. Btw, they're all active and eating but the second girl pictured seems to be breathing heavily and has been since I added her to the new QT tank, even after the water change. I wonder if they are a little too exposed to each other, since I don't have plants between them anymore, but each tank has a nice sized silk plant in it.
The purple girl has stress stripes and they show up really dark and obvious in some pictures but in others you can barely notice them at all. I think they got darker when I removed her silk plant for a few minutes so I could try to capture pictures of her actual coloring. She's got like a purple/maroonish red color going on in her fins and I think I got some okay pictures of it. She definitely has more of a unique coloring than I was expecting! (She's also the oddball because she is the only dark female I have, lol).
