New girl - Julia!

I was wandering through my LFS last Sunday when I came across this little girl. She was alone in a completely bare 10 gallon tank, and appeared to be having a whale of a time! I didn't have a tank set up at home at the time, and I usually try not to purchase fish on impulse, so I left her there.

Of course I was back in an hour. I couldn't pass her up. She was so adorable and cheerful!

Whilst I was getting her settled in, I popped my iPod on shuffle. The first song that came on was "Julia" by John Lennon, and so she was christened.

I have been a little worried about her though... the scales around her belly are very slightly raised. Keeping my fingers crossed that that is normal for her.

Snapped these shots of her earlier today. Please excuse the water marks on the outside of the glass - I wiped the sides down just after these were taken. Julia was so sweet while I was cleaning... she kept zooming downwards after the drips on the outside of the tank! Then she would stare downwards, as if she were thinking "WHERE did it GO?!", before scooting back to the top to chase down another one. : D

Me too! I'm wondering if that counts as butterfly...
Too bad about the red wash on her face, if those bluish scales continued to her gills it would be amazing. Not that I would love her any more than I already do : P

Do you know what her colour is called, officially? Perhaps just "multicolour" :P

And I always have trouble identifying female tail types! Could she be a HM plakat? Her tail spreads out 180 degrees (sometimes).

She looks awesome, her I want!
I like the dragon scale type so I would imagine her to be part dragon even if she isn't. So, idk.
