Results Of My Shopping Spree

I went Christmas shopping and since I was in the area of some of my major petstores, I ended up going to 4 of them :P

I WAS actually looking for some new fish so no impulse buys today!
I was able to find 3 girls and a boy (and some goldfish ;)) and bought some anacharis so we'll see how using live plants works out for me.


First girl is Blush, shes TINY. I was worried about putting her in my sorority, but she's cuddled up to BB, my biggest girl and she seems to be watching out for her, its pretty cute.


Next is unnamed girl, she's a bit skittish. Shes hiding alot but hopefully will become more social. Shes a looks like shes a cambodian but has a shimmery green over her whole body.


Last girl is Clover, shes a really bright green o.o
Shes also been flaring at my alpha so Ive been keeping an eye one her.
Hopefully it all works out. Does anyone know what tail type she is?



And lastly, my boy! Sooooo excited about him, he's my first plakat. He and my unnamed girl looks like they could be spawn siblings based on coloration. (Except different tail types and got them at different stores XD) Hes also got the red on his fins and light body with a shimmery green over his body. He looks like he could be a butterfly but only halfway lol. I still dont have a name for him yet but Ill think of something.




Ill also try and get pictures of my goldies up, theyre super cute too :D

Nice spree! Your second female could be a dragon scale. It's hard to tell from the picture. The third "female" looks a lot more like a veiltail male. I like your plakat; he could be a dragon scale also.

My 3rd female has an egg spot and no beard so shes a girl c:

She's not a dragonscale, nor a Cambodian. Cambodians have a SOLID fin color, usually red. Her fins have two colors. She's a multi-color. Cute fish. =)

Wsll your spree looks so fun! This sounds a lot like what I would and have done in the past. My favorite out of the females is the secon female. Also your butterfly multicolor is very pretty!

To answer your question, the third female is. Female and is a "spade tail"... in other words a female VT. Spadetail it another form of a VT like the combtails. She is also a beautiful one as well!

No problem. Personally, I love red spadetails because their caudal's seem like a fireball in water when they swim really fast.
