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.
