My New Blues?

Recommended Posts

I have been on the look out for another nice blue Orandas for a long time. Most of them have a lot of bronze colored markings on them. I don't mind one marking as I'm not super picky. I visit a my local 8 stores every week and a couple others when I can. Finally this last Saturday I found 3. I purchase 2 of them. They were listed as large for $11.99 each. They are about 3" to 4". One is dark and was listed as a black and is a dark grayish blue. The other was listed as a panda and is light grayish lavender color with a white belly, with one bronze spot. They are in QT (low light) and seem kind of shy for now, making it hard to get a picture. Here a the current pictures. I will post again in a month or so with better pictures.

Lighter one with spot.

Great finds, where did you get em at?

I picked them up from a Independent LFS. Other than the fact that they carry dogs and cat they are a pretty nice store.

Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments. :thumb:

What do the " blues " end up looking like as adults ? or do they keep the grey/blue color long term ?
