Meet Impulse

So I stopped by the store just to see what was there and I saw this boy...He was mislabeled and I grabbed him so fast that I didn't even really look him over before I payed for him...He is so pretty, even though his left fin is torn up I think it will grow back just fine...

Impulse




without flash


What color is he? he is very purple without flash, but light blue with the flash.... o.O

Wow. Handsome devil! I love his name! Very impulsive :) He is an ee in probably purple salamander? I don't know if salamander can reflect his color or the pattern.

Wow. I would pay quite a bit for him! How much was he? His fin should be fine, warm clean water is all he needs. Mislabeled fish are the best. See my avatar? My pride and joy black plakat who I believe was labled as a female (so only 4 bucks!)

He cost me $6.50...I know he's an Elephant Ear (which is why I grabbed him so quickly) but I'm horrible with colors...lolz

Nice score for only $6.50! I would've bought him too! I'm still searching for a nice HMEE at a lfs. Did you get him from Petco?

I still need more opinions on his color/pattern...his head has gotten more maroon over the last 24 hours, but his body is still purpleish...

If any of you guys remember my female Horizon, she ALWAYS showed up blue with a flash, i think it's just the lighting that causes that. She was a gorgeous deep purple under natural light.

So I would say he's purple.

This was Horizon with no flash (RIP Horizon)
