Red Tailed Shark coloration
 
2 Attachment(s)
My RTS has white tips on all of its' fins (except the tail). Is this normal coloration for a 2.5 inch shark? 95% of the pictures I find online show all black fins. I absolutely love it....just afraid it will disappear with age.

wow! that is a gorgeous little guy. he looks very healthy with great bright colors. the ones I see at the pet stores are more greyish with an orangey tail... Anyway, the white probably won't go away. all fish have different unique feateres. looks like you just got lucky!

Ok, that is what I was hoping :-) Thanks for the response!
