He's gorgeous :) I love the black CTs. The closest color name is orchid but that's not a well defined name. I would have picked him up :)

He is definitely what is referred to as a Black Orchid, which genetically is derived from the Blue or Iridescence gene, some also refer to calling this color pattern as Black Lace. Never-the-less, for a CT, it has awesome finnage and is definitely a keeper!!!

Black lace is actually a different thing. Black lace is when a fish has a non melano type black which causes the fins to be a smokey grey color instead of the solid black of a melano.

The black orchid genetic are shown by a deep melano black and a reduced iridescence. The term black orchid is a designer term for what is typically referred to as a blue/black or green/black.
