Blue Acara or Gold Saum
I ordered a few Gold Saum from my LFS but im thinking they might actually be Blue Acara.
I ordered 3 and they are 1.4-1.5 inches long. under the t-5 they look golden but if i shine an led they have a blueish color.They also have the black line under the eye.
I know how to tell if its 3+ inches but as young as they are im really hoping that they arnt actualy Blue Acara.

Looks like a blue acara to me. Only question in my mind would be a juvi terror type... They are just to young to really tell.FW: 1 45gal, 1 40gal, 3 10gal, 3 30gal all community tanks of different species
Sw: 1 55gal, 1 30gal show, 1 29gal show, 1 20gal and 2 10's

My juvenile GT looked nothing like that, 95% sure those are Acaras. They look too rounded in the body to be GTs, plus they have a black stripe whereas a GT should just have a spot.
