I've bought quite a few MGs and have found the same thing as you.....as well, what looks like blue in the Aquabid pics often is more "green" in person. And the yellow rarely looks as bright in person as it does in the pictures. I always look for the seller to describe the fish as a "blue" MG since I like the blue and yellow much more than the green and yellow.

Chumlee's body is so dark blue hes almost black, same with his fins except under the lights they glow a gorgeous royal blue. I was expecting a bright yellow "french's mustard" and ended up a "grey popoun" lol hes still really pretty tho and he has a fun little personality. hes my buddy :)

Here's the best pic I have been able to get of him since hes been home, so u can compare it to the avitar pic which is the one I got from the seller (minus the embellishments I added of course)

He's very pretty as he is! But, yes, it isn't always easy to adjust to how they look in "real life" compared with the picture....and the iridescence which makes them so beautiful also can be tricky to capture accurately in a pic.

Sorry to hi-jack the thread there, BettaSpark! Do you have a pic of your male you could here BettaSpark?

love that 1st one, very pretty!!!

I noticed that my CT was WAY more aggressive then my new (non-CT) boy and have read that they usually tend to be more agressive. I wonder why that is? My CT was lazy as heck but if u came near his tank u better watch out hehehe. loved my grumpy little Sushi. My new boy (Chum) is very active but not even the tiniest bit aggressive. hes just a happy little fish. its funny how different they can be.
