Cambodian?

I bought Arrrgyle at a Petco where he was just described as a veiltail, but I was wondering if someone could tell me whether or not he's a true Cambodian? What else would he be, colorwise?



In this shot you can see the little divot where his eye was supposed to be... He's so cute.

Aren't the marbles supposed to change color, though? I've never seen a color change on him.

I think he is marble as well, because he is kinda white with the purple/blue spots it suggests he already changed colors... that's my opinion anyway!

Hmm, I dunno. He's had that kind of speckled look since I got him in January. Is it possible for micro-changes to happen? Like only a few scales at a time?

It could be possible I guess. My girl is a marble and she hasn't changed much since the first few weeks that I got her. Also, you don't really know how old he is since I'm assuming you got him from a pet store so he could have marbled before you got him! My niece has a cambodian and it doesn't quite look like that.

I think it'd be interesting to know what he is, but it's not urgent or anything. I haven't seen one that looks really similar to him. I like that he's different!

You can't really see in the picture but his fins / tail are pinkish / purple on the tips, but it's not an obvious band like in butterflies. Is he just a mutt?
