This picture really doesn't do him justice.
He's lost some scales presumably from stress. To keep him from fighting with my new fantails, I put about five of them in at once- and it worked. I tried the same strategy because I wanted to keep a pair of Leilupies in the tank, but that didn't work so well so I had to get rid of them.
He has these light blue spines in his fins that glow brilliantly in the flourescent blue light. And when he flares, he's a complete half moon. Really, a beautiful fish.
