This is my new guy, currently unnamed (any suggestions?).  Sorry for the darkness of the first picture, I haven't got a program right now that can adjust the lighting since I had to reinstall WinXP.  He's currently in a 1gal quarantine tank.  Its hard to see with the lighting but he's black with white bands on his fins.

I'm not positive. By the time one of my other ones that I got very young was that size, he had an obvious veiltail (combtail var.). So I suspect he's a delta. We rarely see that coloring around here, which is why I just had to get him. Also got for various other tanks three cories (currently looking up what type it is, the LFS called it a punctatus catfish but I know that's not right), an SAE and three rosy barbs to munch on some BBA. And a ton of plants for my A.modestus and blue betta (Oscar) tanks.

Thanks everyone. Oddly enough though, I think he's going to be Phil. That was the first name that came to me when I saw him for some odd reason, and he just seems like a Phil.

Phil is a good name for him and we do welcome him to the community. He is a lovely melano color and probably like you say shows all the characteristics of a budding Delta. He is going to be a real beauty, even more than he is now.

Congratulations, I hope you have a fine time with him. Melanos do have a rep for being feisty and fun.

Here are a few more pictures of him. He's darker than he looks in the pictures, its just cuz of the flash. He seems to be settling in nicely though. The surface is absolutely covered in bubbles.
