I must be loco! (and a tail type question)

... we all know how these threads start... I went to the LFS today AND...





This is my new dragon, Alexander. Don't ask me how I came up with the name.. it just came to me about 5 minutes ago LOL. I didn't mean to get him. I went in to see if they sold live worm cultures or brine shrimp hatcheries (which they don't). I got to talking to the owner/manager and mentioned I was breeding bettas and he showed me the new fish they had gotten in. They had 3 dragons. Alexander, a copper dragon, and one with pinkish/red fins. They also had 2 black kings that they were calling "round tails" and selling for $20 They also had a really nice assortment of VT and CT. Well I was just gushing over Alexander saying how beautiful he was and how I'd really been wanting one like him but I couldn't afford the $6.99 they were asking for him. Well the guy gave me Alexander 50% off because of all the business I've been doing with them lately (they know me by name 8)). Well for $3 I couldn't resist.

I'm probably going to sound stupid but I can't decide what his tail type is. He looks almost VT but I think he's actually a Delta. What do y'all think? He has some fin curling from poor water quality but that will be addressed











And a couple of Rio. He is marbling! He's turning blue all over. Right now he looks really bruised LOL Again no flaring pics.. this boy won't flare for anything!

He does look more like a delta to me. I have a VT and it doesn't spread quite as much throughout the whole tail like pictures of Alexander do.... but don't quote me on this ;) I love Rio too! He's so cute!

Wow, he's so pretty. :) I wish my LFS would give me a good customer discount. Whenever I have money it always ends up going there. :P

Thanks I think he's gorgeous.

DH.. thats what I'm thinking. He looks like a delta or maybe a super det. (judging from the last pic). I'm gonna see if he gets anymore reach once he settles in more.

The first and second pic he's not fully flared. The third and fourth his fins are fully extended (I think). That's why his tail is droopy in the first couple of pics.
