I have a female..which I really think is a male Planket..anyway she has a few horizontal tanish srtipes..she is a very dark blue with red edges around her tail...I noticed these stripes when I first put her in her new tank..after a few hours they went away...I think they show up when the fish is under stress.

In order to really give you a definitive answer we're going to need more information. Could you read this link and give us the information it asks for?

Photos would also be very helpful!
