Gold Spike

Half a dozen males with this phenotype were born into one of the Goleta Darts tanks. The type is nearly devoid of color except for some gold flecks and orange spots around the tail. The bottom sword in the photograph has a metallic gold sheen The body and the white parts are also highly metallic and reflective under aquarium lighting. I separated out a couple of these males in a tank with some females to see if the phenotype could be reproduced. Now I'm waiting for the fry to get big enough to tell I'm going to get anything for my trouble.
