Garth! Metallic-white HMPK.

Typical story, went to petco to get plants and came home with a fish.
He was there for about a week, and this time I just couldn't pass him up. My main goal was to find a fish that was really, really different. Lately i've been seeing a lot of whites pop up, but none caught my eye quite like he does.



This is the most decent picture I have of him. He's a metallic-white HMPK. Most of the whites I see are almost see-through, but he is literally SOLID white until it gets to the bottom of him, as you can see. I think he's a marble, but won't know for sure for awhile. He has this awesome pink sheen to him that makes me classify him as metallic, but it's really hard to get on camera. One day, I will! :)

He's going to go in my 6.6 after I divide it and decide on what/where I want to put my plants.



This is his temporary home until then. Turns out I have a hitch hiker snail, who will be living with him for awhile. If he survives, cool, if not that's cool too. :)

He is really pretty. I just love how clean his color is with that pure white.

Wow!! Thanks for all the compliments, guys! I love him to bits. :)

I don't think he's a dragonacale, compared to Dimitri (HMEE) he's got about the same size scales. They just show up better on white. :)
