What would you call his fin type?
He has a lot of rays, if you let him flare at least once a day he should become a HM.

They can develop dragon scales pretty young, this guy was tiny when I took this :)


In this photo the scales are just starting to form and look metallic. It took about a month for the scales to look like a dragon. The scales had been small at first but would get bigger until they eventually pressed up against one another.

He does look very metallic, with dragon geno. Still lovely nonetheless.

I started his flare sessions today... but not for too long.

I went thru my pictures I took today to see if I could get some alternate views on his coloring. The other pics I selected were because of his fins and stuff.

Copperarabian, You have such awesome fish!
Thanks for including those pictures as a point of reference.

These may or may not help... I hope it does though

Metallic with a dragon geno... that sounds about right.
Thank you:)

I can't wait to see him all grown up, he's fantastic! In the last photo definitely looks like he has some dragon genes but it still doesn't look 100%. Are you able to take a video of him sometime? Or take some photos without using flash because they make his iridescence go haywire.

What's a 'metallic?'
What's a 'copper?'
What's a 'dragon?'
What's a 'dragon geno?'

I will see what I can do. I dont think he's dragon... but has the genes. The pictures make him look all normal sized and gigantic... but he's so tiny. I am going to have to take a picture where I add an item for scale. He's barely over an inch incl his fins.
I cant wait to see what he's like when he grows up too.

Thanks for sharing your opinion and optimism :)

Do some searches. You'll learn a lot. There's a wealth of knowledge contained in these forums.
