Default Dark Blue BBXB

Gotten a little birthday present last weekend. (my wife bday)





After being in my tank for about 1 week, he gave me a bit of surprise today while i was looking at the tank admiring them.






Noticed the brown red rims at belly?? Will it be a cross belly piece?
Also the golden mouth too! first time i had such.

Doesn't look 'dark blue' in your tank.
Out of curosity, how do you tell if a juvenile crossback is blue base?

And is there a slight hump on its back; in front of the dorsal fin.

Cross or not cross belly, blue or no blue, is still young to tell.What I can see is onli grey gery like rims is yet to develop.

i hope you paid RTG price for this. XB can get pretty obvious lvl5 shine and good intensity with some pearlies and even gold lines below $500 today.

Bro can I check with you the scale as you can see so green could it mix with other aro? Maybe I see wrong.
Cause I seldom see xb scale the core so green.

Listening for more inputs.
