ID my Fish

Postby Ice Man » Mon Sep 30, 2019 4:43 am

What am I ? I was sold as a Lwanda. Am i something else? Do i have different parents? Colour wise I am a grey/purple with a hint of blue and orange but still colouring up as I am just under 3". I am a bit aggressive but not the boss ( but like to think I am )

Not a lwanda. Could end up being a red peacock.

Thanks I think you may be right.

I was in the shop I bought him from today and they had some more and this time they were labelled red peacock’s.

This fish has coloured up since I bought him as he wasn’t nearly as red / orange originally. I suspec5 he may have been in the wrong tank or mis labelled.
