Nova Shows His True Colors!

So, Supernova was my second boy ever, bought quite a while ago, a lovely CT Petsmart find who just stole my heart with his interesting colors and constant flaring ;)
I'd been lonely since Shiro-chan passed and Ed moved into the divided 10, there was no one left to live next to my computer and keep me company....so I stole the 2 gallon acrylic tank Max, my moms betta, used to live in(he is now in a 2.5 gallon heated tank in my brothers class room ;))and set my flaremonster up next to me to keep me company, then moved Winry into his portion of the divided 10(she was getting singled out and picked on by my Honey Gourami).
Anyway, long story short, I've really almost never been able to get pictures of him that show off his true natural coloring. All the ones with flash turn out like this:
(Pic from the first day I got him....)


And the ones without flash are super blurry.
Well, turns out that this lamp I'm now using for his tank, filtered through the purple lid, lets me get some pretty decent shots without the flash of his true coloring!! :D I was so excited, finally I can show my pretty boy off <3
But, anywho, here is the pic spam xD They're not amazing, there are only probably two or three in here I actually like. IMO, they don't quite capture the intensity of his colors well, but at least you can see hat he REALLY looks like xD
Please excuse the fin damage, hes still recovering from his little spat with Jirou ^^; Though, as you can see with all the clear re-growth, hes recovering well ;)

Crazy color difference from the first photo. He's sooooo beautiful. And he was checking you out big time. What a little camera hog.

Yup, hes really lavender/blue/red as opposed to all blue with some red, though he has this blue sheen that blocks out everything else when I use the flash >_<;

lol! Hehe, yes, Nova is a total attention monger/camera ham/flaremonster xDD No mirror needed for this guy, I just have to get the camera out or even just sit and watch him and he'll start showing off and strutting his stuff ;) <3 Such a showoff xDD
I'm training him now a bit to, trying to teach him some tricks. Hes really liking all the extra attention xD
