I initially put this in the wrong area, sorry about that!
I just bought a male and a female Dalmation Lyretail molly a few hours ago. I was wondering, is his tail supposed to have this glow to it? The female doesn't have any of this gloweyness, but she's not anywhere near as dark as he is, she's mostly white with speckles. I didn't see it at the petshop, and the kind of light I have is a "Flora Sun" Max Plant Growth, 15 Watts. I can't see it under other lights. On his black scales which is most of him, I can only see it from an angle. It's -extremely- bright when he's fully under the light! They looked perfectly healthy, eat well and are energetic when not hiding from me, first day is the suck. lol And have no fuzzy growths or anything. I just wanna make sure, they warned me they had a few bad shipments, which has apparently been the story since the end of last year(That's how long I've been looking for some nice Dalmation Lyretails). I currently have them in my ten gallon, which is usually my nursery, moved the fry to another nursery. lol Until I get the infection cleared up in my big tank anyways(My grandmother got me a balloon molly with Columnaris Flexibacteria and I am treating the whole tank just incase).
Normally one would give their water levels and such, but they came from Petsmart only a couple hours ago, three to be exact(This photo was taken ten minutes after I put them in the tank, I noticed the glow when I was floating them though), so it's not my water causing anything. Here's the photo of him though, you can only see it on his tail right now, but it's kinda all over him when he is directly under the light, but it's brightest around his lighter colored areas, his tail practically glows on its own!
