I didn't think my phone sent pics to my email but I figured it out last night! Alright, so my phone doesn't take GREAT pics, but you'll get the idea! I'm presuming the pink/purple/red is a multicolor? Anyways, his name is Rumble and he refuses to flare at anything! What a tough guy

And my new one is a steel blue. I know he looks royal in the photo, but the blue on his fins is a really pretty grayish color. I fell in love with him immediately. He's unstessing right now but I hope to see some personality soon. I haven't named him yet though! Any suggestions would be great!

Pretty! I have no idea about the first guys coloration but I like it :)

For some reason I think the name Milo seems to fit the steel guy.

How new is rumble? If hes new(2weeks or less) he may just be fadded from the store stress and will color up. Its possible his body is a blue or red. Hes a multicolor either way but still a pretty fish, i like the VTs. And Milo is just adorable.

Rumble is I think about 2 weeks new, nothing more. He's kind of split in two. His front is a bit darker and his end is lighter, its not just shadow and light. The purple on his tail is iridescent and shines in the light. Its amazing and I wish I could capture it on film.

I think Milo is a great name for my blue! Thanks for the suggestion! I hope he settles in just fine. I've had my eye on another one at the store...but I'm trying to keep some sort of self control lol

You're welcome! I'm glad you like it :3 He kind of made me think of the vehicles in that Disney movie about Atlantis and that's how I got the idea. lol.

Your boy is a multicolor :) He's rather cute.

How that color is achieved is having cambodian genes (that give you red fins and a cream colored body) where the body isn't a pure cream but instead slightly red so you get a lighter pinkish red body and red fins. Then the blue iridescent layer above the red layer is thin so that it doesn't show as a pure blue, but some of the red from below seeps through creating pinks and purples.

Thanks for all that info, Maryanne! Thats very interesting and it gave me a little window into understanding how his color was created :)

Fry, self control IS over rated...I brought home 3 new bettas today >_<
