as juveniles/ when young Saulosi are yellow-orange, males start to turn blue-purple with some vertical black bars when they are getting mature, males can be inbetween yellow and blue, yellowish with a blue tint and faint bars.

Demasoni ALWAYS have thick black bars on a neon royal blue body, whether female or male or young. Sometimes the color can be faded somewhat when they are uncomfortable.

They really are not hard to tell apart. Only a really nice Saulosi male looks anything like a Demasoni. Saulosi males are not as dark as a Demasoni nor are really as attractive as Demasoni generally.

Saulosi have marked sexual dimorphism, in which males and females are different colors.
