Albino Dragon Blood?

Postby Succinimide » Mon Aug 20, 2012 11:47 pm

Hey everyone,

I just bought what I believe to be an Albino DragonBlood Peacock... Can anyone confirm this or steer me in the correct direction?

I was also thinking about a sunburst perhaps, but it doesnt seem red enough for that.


Could this be some sort of hybrid?

Technically they are all hybrids. I am not sure how anybody can tell the difference. I just call them all sunburst/dragons blood/fire fish/strawberry, etc...I think unless you purchased one from the originally created strain you can't be certain what your buying is 100% dragons blood. They can be stunning no matter what they are. If you are looking for certain characteristics such as a purple/pink/red with some white and blue fins then get a good look at previous offspring or parents of these fish. Just hard to say. Even fish from the same parents can look different.

As far as I'm concerned the names all point to the same fish. Their is quite a bit of variation in them; I have two in my 180g, One is very orange like yours with a orange face and another which has alot more white and has a pinkish shoulder. They were both sold to me as dragonbloods.

They can be super aggressive as well so keep an eye out.
