...okay...help me out here a little...I look up blue glitters online and I see what look to me to be blue pearl scales...what is the difference?...
Even duct tape can't fix stupid ... but it can muffle the sound...and zip ties, properly applied, can reduce the movement!

The fish may have been labeled wrong too.

Bottom is definitely pearl scale...but I don't see a "pattern" in the upper fish...

....it's a random expression......look around the gill plates and first bar.....glitter and snakeskin are markings inherited from wild caught scalare such as Rio Negro and Rio Nanay...

Here's a better pic....mine originated from Plumber Frank...it's thought that glitter may be an expressive gene ?
