blue-tail hillstream

Hey,

Well, one of my hillstreams is finally showing happycolors, dark brown base with cream dots and red edged tail. When it spreads its tail though teh interior is sky blue. Strangest thing. I'll try getting a picture this weekend.

It doesn't at all compare to a full yellow one of a green one, but I think it's interesting just the same. That green hillstream is so neat looking.

I also finally went back to the store I got him at, and I believe found 3 more with the same colors. I think they had another kind as well, but I'm trying to stick to one kind at a time.

An actual question now. I have seen hillstreams with reddened nasal tubercles, is that bad, a sign of sickness,
