    Oh, no! I've been attempting to condition them so they get used to each other; clear plastic see through one gallon QT tanks so they can all see each other. There was quite a bit of flaring from my EE girls for a day but they calmed down. One of the red dragons flared at the other red dragon! But I only saw it once. Two of them seem dead set on trying to attack ME of all things through the front of the tanks!! Lol, better me than each other, I guess. I sometimes see them trying to "get at" each other through the glass but there's no more flaring and it doesn't last long. I hope that's a good sign!

    I have one back up tank if one doesn't work out and if I end up having to, I can move my blind male, divide the 5 gallon and divide the ten into four parts. I hope I don't have to do that, though!!

    A twenty? Oh boy, now you can buy 10 more to put in the twenty with the others! LOL! Only if they get along though. I just took a few out for pictures from two 20 gallon sororities with a hundred or so in each. Their fins all look good and no fighting to speak of. I bet if I mixed the two together it would be a fin fest. I can just see the scales flying!

    Hi, Richard!

    I am releasing my six females (four from you and two other EE girls from Mo) into the ten gallon tomorrow! I'm planning on upgrading to a twenty gallon but fingers crossed that they all get along well! They are still doing good and seem to be very healthy!!!

    I tried, lol. She had stress stripes so I really couldn't get any good pictures. I'll probably try again, anyways, though.

    I really like the spots on the top of the first girl - they kind of look like koi markings. I really hope they stay there. And the second girl has such bright colors! It was amazing to me because I took those pictures the same day I got them in the mail - the first time I received females in the mail, they were pale and had very little color.

    And I took that picture of the purple female on my phone because I just didn't really feel like lugging out my camera :p so hopefully today I can get some pictures on my actual camera. Idk, I'll see what I can do. I will probably remove the silk plant in her QT tank to get some better lighting. My camera takes really fast photos if the lighting is adequate.

    I thought I sent a White Snow Dragon but it looks like it colored up. The top two are Red Dragons and tghe third one is a Fire Dragon.The Fire Dragon females don't show the thicker scaling of the others or their male counterparts. It will be extremely hard to get a good pictutre of the Purple girl that actually shows her dark Purple coloring. I know, I've been trying for 4 years. I have a halogen light above and to the side of their photo chamber now and that seems to be the best light source and angle for me so far.

    Here they are in their QT tanks! Would you be able to tell me which dragon girl is which?

    Thank you :) I'll probably do express shipping (I'm assuming that price is for priority). I will have to wait a while more because it is supposed to snow here the next two days and I'm not sure if its going to warm up much in a week or so. I am hoping you'll still have a purple female left. They are pretty! (And so are the dragon girls!)

    Anyways, I will PM you, then. Thank you :)

    I have a few of the Purple girls still. They are between 5 and 6 months old. $25 would do it. That's with shipping included. I get $10 just for the Purple females on Aquabid but I give forum members discounts.

    Ooh, how many purple females do you have left? How much would you charge for 3 dragon girls (a red, fire, & snow) and a purple female including shipping? And what age are they?
