Aquila (He's my favorite, I know I'm not supposed to but he's so sweet, very calm, and loves perching on his IAL at the surface which is endearing.)

I have more coming. I have 3 coming from Chard56, and a few from aquabid. :)
Sorry about the quality of some of the pictures, they were taken right after they arrived and I was trying to get them all situated.

The breeder I bought them from gave me a great deal! He included Hydra for $10 more, and he had specifically matched the two. Which is great because I'm going to breed them first. Hydrus is show quality so I'm hoping to get more of him in the spawn. :)

Thanks! I love Greek Mythology, I've based these guys specifically on stars or having to do with stars. I'm going to move on to other themes with each generation.

Here are my new ones:
Corvus (my copper butterfly DT. He's even more gorgeous in person!)
Name:  Corvus.jpg

Taurus (She is my favorite little lady so far, I just get a sense that she's a sweetie. I may pair her to Aquila since they both seem compatible personality wise, I'll have to check color and form wise though.)
Name:  Taurus.jpg

Virgo (She is a spiffy little one. She's a red dragon HM. Very pretty when she's not so stressed out!)
Name:  Virgo.jpg

HAHAHA! I was trying not to, but I had originally purchased Hydrus, Andromeda, and Aquila. Then the breeder said he would include Hydra for an extra 10. Seeing as I wasn't planning on other ones I decided to start a sorority... THEN purchasing from other breeders I thought it would be more cost effective to purchase more, so I did. Then I had buy more set ups for the guys... I have one that's going to be divided in the 20g with the girls. (Sterne) And that's what happened... O.O BUT then I saw a post from Chard56 about his bettas... And I NEEDED a purple, and of course he had some... then he had silver dragons, and even a little yellow dragon!!! Eek! I HAD to get those too. But now all I need is an orange dalmatian and a koi. LOL! My poor hubby is going to come home to even more here.
