Welp, didn't take me long to get an official picture thread started for my new boy. Everyone meet Socrates! Originally I went to pick out a black orchid male, but my mom picked this guy up and ultimately my heart melted and I brought him home.
I'm pretty sure he's a marbled dragonscale veiltail, but his fins are a bit torn so it's a bit hard to tell. He was just labeled as a dragonscale.
For anyone that's wondering, name origin: Socrates
was the mentor to the philosopher Plato, who originally wrote the tale of Atlantis in his dialogues Timaeus
. Socrates was also a character in these dialogues.
Couldn't name him Plato because that's my clown pleco xD
He's from Segrest Farms, and the date on his cup reads 4/21/2012. Not sure if that's his birth date or what, seeing I'm hoping he hasn't been in the shop for that long.
Also, soon after I released him he discovered the little bits of floating Hornwort and he decided he was going to try and eat them xD
