Thumbs up Rachael's Super Tigers (Pics!)

Rachael! Got my super tigers last night, they look AWESOME! Think you'll appreciate these pics I never knew they were so intricately colored/detailed with so many variations.

Blue tint with black and silver bands


Yellow tint with black and gold bands


Orange tint with black and gold bands


And lastly here's a dark blue with very prominent gold striping


Beautiful!

wow! just saw this! Great shots!! Is it ok if I use one for the species profile? I have a heck of a time photographing them in their tank (acrylic and a bit scratched).

So, um, what's the difference between a "Super" Tiger and a "regular" Tiger?

This post on Liam's (mordalphus) blog sums the differences up pretty well.

Super tigers have thicker black banding with hints of yellow coloring on the nose and tails.

And here I thought they were named as such just because Rachel is super.

Actually, I don't like the regular tigers and these are much prettier.

Without Algae, death of mankind would be inevitable.

They're much prettier and hardier, in my experience.

Those are for sure super tiger. I got some blue tint as well but they changed color based on water conditions.

Got my msjinkzd super tigers yesterday and they are pretty sweet. I hope like heck I can get some breeding going on because I'd love a tank full of these beauties.
