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.

Interesting, AKBlueJacks AKBlueJacks might have some insight

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 $$

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!
