Haha the aura blues look nothing like blue pearls to me. Auras are a definite blue with shiny exoskeleton and blue pearls are tealish pale and not shiny. I don't like blue pearls tbh.

But yeah they aren't available anywhere here afaik.

No, I wasnt ever able to find them. I think people are steering towards the blue velvets now, I could be wrong havent been on here for months. I tried many ways to keep the Blue Auras alive, was hard to get a good foot to start on to being so expensive.

do you have any left? you could breed them to TT and half a mix of both plus a few green or yellow as well. I read somewhere a guy testing it.
