Dragon Blood Peacocks color?

StanV

So I just went to my LFS and after 4-7 months of looking they finally got some some Dragons blood peacocks, but they are juveniles and around 2 inches. But I was wondering because they look yellow, will they stay yellow when they get older or will they get that pink/red colors???

Looks like stressed out juveniles.
Dragonblood Peacocks come in many colors apparently due to selective breeding. Red, Orange, Strawberry & Blue Dragons.
I've kept several different color morphs of Dragonbloods & still have a four year old Blue Dragon.
Once acclimated, the pictured DB will likely attain one of the established colors. Here's a pic of my Blue Dragon & one of his deceased brothers. Although different colors both are Dragon
Bloods.

Even the blue dragonbloods look different from each other. Mine has a deep blue face and his body is the color of red wine...like cabernet or malbec.
