I recently found out that I am partially colorbind. (Thank you optometrist) I am pretty sure he is blue, but I have no clue how he would be classified becase I can't tell the difference between a royal and a steel blue. I would love to be able to call him what he really is.
Thanks everyone. :)

I would consider him a royal blue/ yellow bi-color.

Very sexy... I have a Blue/White Marble male with a caudal fin like that. I love them when they flair, I worry about him as he gets older though cause they are just so bloody long.

The longer the fins, the more they are prone to issues and illnesses?

Not necessarily. If the fins rip often or the fish bites its own fins often, they are more susceptible to infection simply because of the fact that infection can access the body more easily through damaged tissue. Heavily finned fish are more likely to bite themselves or inadvertently tear their fins from over-flaring or snag their fins on items in the tank. However, if you follow all the instructions on our awesome care sheet and maintain optimal water conditions all the time, then you have nothing to worry about, ripped fins or not. Good husbandry and maintenance will ensure that your fish is strong enough to heal if injured and fight infections without getting sick.

Ectetra,
Thanks for your input. So far I am doing everything right, not to say that something can't go wrong. I do my best to keep a close eye on him and his conditions. If anything were to arise this would be the first place I would come to diagnose.
