is this the same fish???

I have serious doubts, don't get me wrong my TINY little guy is very cute and sweet, and I very happy with him, but I am pretty darn sure after watching him for a couple weeks that he is not the fish I bought.

Unless his fins grew out very fast, I don't think it's the same fish either. :/

Yeah I the first pic he looks like he has double rays and in the second pic single rays.

Edit: Nevermind he does have the double rays but they're way longer in the second pic

They don't have the same coloration at all. Flaring pics would help but I don't think thats the same fish.

I can see how MAYBE hes the same fish. I always wonder how the "breeders" get such VIBRANT colours when they keep them in little tanks with no plants.
And of course the pics always look amazing!!!

Im not sure tho....tough one. Could it be from the same "litter" (dont know the proper word) like his brother or something? Definatley not as dramatically coloured as the "one you bought"

I say judging on the length from the end of the dorsal fin to the top of the caudal fin it is not the same fish. (unless he grew in length)

:/ Still the one u have is really pretty!

What breeder did u get your fish from (if u dont mind me asking)

Usually the tanks breeders take pictures in are not the tanks the fish are kept in. They're put in clear glass or plastic tanks surrounded by other fish to get them to flare... similar to betta shows. And usually they have good lighting on the fish for the picture.

If when you bought the fish it said something about "what you see is what you get" then it is probably the same fish or it could be a sibling from the same spawn..

I highly doubt thats the same fish. Even in the lighting in the second pic, you can see their body colors aren't the same- first is darker, second being lighter. And the second fish's fins aren't outlined in black.

Really don't think that's the same fish. Which really sucks.

The rays aren't even slightly the same, and the coloring is totally different. Maybe tell the breeder??

same fry maybe, not same fish though. i've never seen a dark body like that turn so light. all his black and blue is gone and that cant just happen...
unless you know the breeder personally, i think you may have been fooled. someone who wants to sell average fish faster by putting up amazing pics that are similar to the actual fish.
