My new guys

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!
They are in their plastic cups because I was cleaning today

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

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

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.
