Orange King, their fry are small with big heads.
He'll likely be very aggressive, my Kingsley batters the side of his tank when I bring the mirror close even if he can't see himself.

I don't know much about plakats. Never really liked the boxy look of 'em. I guess I'll do research.

Seems like a lot of people felt the way I do, when they ended up with their first plakat and now wouldn't go back. Maybe I'll be the same. Hm.

You said he's small, which makes me think he's a young delta, I've been breeding halfmoon plakats for a few years, his fins are really already too long to be a plakat. Gorgeous boy though, and a great find!

I just thought I'd update, maybe get further opinions.

Paiget a week or so ago:


And Paiget an hour ago or so:


He's gotten MUCH more orange, almost a vibrant yellow-orange, it's gorgeous. He also has this black edging that's coming in... and his split fin healed up really well. His top fin has now grown to where it's overlapping his tail at all points, and most especially when flaring. He's gotten slightly bigger in size, but nothing drastic.

His tail looks like it's bigger, too? I'm thinking maybe delta, at this point?

Either, he's gone through a HUGE, awesome change. And it's not slowing down. A picture from just two days ago didn't have this much of htat black edging on it. It's crazy :D

He has a 4 ray caudal fin but not a 180 degree spread so if he has a spread of between 120 (I think it's 120) to less than 180 he's a Super Delta and less than 120 he'd be a Delta. Being young his caudal rays may branch again and surprise you and turn out to be Halfmoon.

I agree. He's really growing on me. Besides being pretty, he's got an outrageous (see: cute aggressive, OCD about where you feed him) personality. A good bundle.

Wow, he's grown loads! He's absolutely gorgeous. I love his face, and his fins and coloring are just amazing! :) Wonder what he'll turn into, but right now at the very least he is a delta tail. :)
