PostSubject: Not a green dragon...   Thu May 09, 2013 4:49 am

I was on the hunt for Green Dragon fry at a reasonable price for months, and finally found some on aquabid a month or so ago. I trusted the seller as I had recieved some albinos and calicos off of him before and they turned out to be great looking, but these I believe we're mis-identified.


I recieved 6 Juvies at around 3/4-1" long and they are a black color with small whitish grey spots on them and the tips of their dorsal and caudal a have white on them. Similar to a starlight only the white doesn't reach all the way to the base of the fins. Just the very tip of their dorsal and top of the caudal. I originally thought that maybe they'd fade out to greens once they grew more, but that seems unlikely to me.


I'll try to get a picture, but they are all in a very densely planted tank and It's not very often that I see them hanging out in the open, and I'd rather not try to net them as that'll probably ruin my just redone aquascape.


I'm thinking it's just a common, but all the commons I have seen are brown which is what is throwing me for a loop.

Any thoughts as what these guys could be, color variant or anything would help me out greatly!

You are correct that they are definitely not geen dragons!

Does anyone think they could be L183?

Did you contact the seller? Maybe he mistakenly sent you the wrong fish? I have been looking for a roup of resonable green dragons too or just one female as I have 3 males!! Just my luck, lol.
