Meet Rodimus Prime

I got Rodimus on thursday. I felt ready then after Moonshoes passed away.

He had some sbd going on, but it literally went away within 2 hours of 1 tsp/gal epsom salt treatment. He hasn't had any recurrences and eats like a little pig (Now I see why he had sbd)

He's still in quarantine, but I plan on having him in the divided 10 gallon with Mirage.

I'm thinking he's a spade tail but I have no idea if his coloring classifies as just orange or something else as well. He's got a purple/green shine to him depending on lighting.

Aww hes a cutie! I don't know much about colors, but he may be a chocolate? But wait for someone more experienced with colors.

I LOVE his scales. I'd say he is a veil tail, could you get one of him flaring?

He's very pretty. :) Looks more like a veiltail but a flaring pic could help determine whether or not he is a spade.

I was just thinking he was a spade since his tail opens more near the middle than Mirage's ever has, and the end of Mirage's tail is open quite a bit more than Rodimus's.

I'll try and get a picture of him flaring, but he likes to do the whole flare and dart around thing (He's very exuberant).

After a feast of bloodworms and a quick nap, I floated Rodimus in with Starscream (Who surprisingly didn't chicken out and hide in his cave) to see if I could get him to flare.

30 pictures later, I think the answer is relatively clear. Rodimus and Starscream are both divas and think the other one is ugly.

They are probably spitting out those old fashioned threats to each other, too xD

"You annoying autobot!"

"You coward decepticon!"

P.S - I think he has fin rot, but it could just be me. If his tail weren't torn up yes he would be a spade xD

For sure.

Starscream managed to crash during his photoshoot though, which means Rodimus won this round.

Maybe next time Starscream, maybe next time.

Every time I dog sit for my parents I watch an episode or two. Found it was on Netflix and I couldn't resist.

Any ideas as to his tail type and coloring though? I'm still pretty sure he's a spade since Mirage's tail doesn't flare up like that at all and he's for sure a veil.
