Nice blue tone & congras to the new catch I'll leave the scales as it is first while waiting for the aro to get use to its new environment.

bro, previously my foon lok, 6 years old goldie did experienced some chipped scales. That was about 3 years back.

What I did was : daily wc @30% for a month or so. Honest, after a short while, its scales are alright.
