      I just got this guy last week and I have to say that it is a neat looking little fish, I never seen these available in my area until recently, have any of you guys seen them available were you live? and are they weak like the Electric blues?

      Wow, I have not seen one like it before. I hope you’ll keep the post updated as it grows. I’d be very interested to see how to turns out.

      I believe that is the same morph called "Platinum" here. I found some on a site with the same looks and asked @YankeeJack@YankeeJack about them. He said it was the "Platinum" morph.

      Interesting, it could be the same fish, my guy does seem to have a lot more blue coloring on him than the platinums they were selling at the same store, they could've just picked out the ones with more blue on them and sold them as electric pinks to fetch more $$

      This was the pic from the site. They called them "Electric Pink" as well.

      I wonder if the store had some golds and platinums. The platinums (I've heard them called electric pink) have more blue.

      Here are some comparisons: The first pic is of a Platinum.

      The second pic has an EB and a Gold (I've heard Gold referred to as Pink).

      Your Platinum has some really nice spangling!

      Thanks for sharing the pic, mine seems to have more blue coloring on the whole body but that could just mean that platinums could have varying amounts of blue coloring on them.
