Got the Blues?
The picture seems to give them a light blue coloration, do you notice that they have this blue coloration in your tanks irl?

msjinkzd 09-02-2011 05:01 PM

Yes, some do. Some are the more typical tan and some have reddish stripes. There are also "super tigers" in the tank. All these colorations are normal wild variant. Some (as you guys probably know) have been line bred to isolate out the recessive color variations.

Nice profile.

For regular tigers I prefer the wild caught variation like yours have over the uniform brown/tan/black stripe type that are typically sold.

kurosuto 02-17-2012 01:12 AM

so these tigers are different from lets say, the ones sold by morphalous(sorry if i spelled it wrong)?
