DTPK pair is here....

My pair arrived this morning . I knew what the male looked like but the female was a surprise. It was like Christmas opening the box up. The female is doing well. The male who I've named Loki is have some issues swimming . I've put him in a cup with only about 2 inches of water and some oak leaf extract. Hopfully he'll come around soon. This female needs a name, I'm open to suggestions...

My other female also a DTPK just missed this shipment so she's catching the next one.

Thanks! The male is really faded from shipping. This is what he looks like when he's colored up....

Hes a... blue marble right?

I love blue marbles!

He went from Navy Blue to Turquoise... I'm sure he'll get his color up though.
Nez turned almost white when I brought him home from my LFS. His color has actually gotten way prettier from when he was in the cup too!

Name the female Wild Berry! The male should be named Sorbet.

They're both very nice. Great long bodies, especially for DT. I'm worried though that they sent you a DT female (presumably sibling?) to go with a DT male. Generally DT X DT crosses are frowned upon, especially sibling crosses.
