Brilliant thread mate. I agree with WLW that it would be good to have scale counts included, maybe care requirements as well for each individual sub species, more info the better! I'd love to see this become a sticky!

I know the orginal parents from Eriks in germany were from the wild. However like me he incubates them maternally and thus has less control over them. However that aside the parents were still striped.



I did see the tag yes, i understand what you ment aswell. Hence why i stated i personally wouldnt say its a standard looking yearling, or any age of standard moluccan. I personally would have said it was maluku island localtiy
Your more trational looking moluccans look like this

The other thing that might be worth mentioning is with regards to the change in colour of them, this ONLY becomes duller in females, males get brighter and retain there young colours due to the species being sexually dimorphic




Yep i agree with you there i guess.
To be fair to see a scrub on sale in most shops is a rare sight in its own right but you want to snap it up when possible.
I am just a big fan of fine detail. Especially so with scrubs because there's so much untrue crap written up on them and they suffer terribly from undeserved reputations.

There was a patterned xanthic nauta in my local shop two years ago. He wanted shot of it and said I could take it for £100. Went back a few days later and it had escaped, never to be seen again. Words cant describe how gutted I felt! O and ill rweply to you PM a little later mate. Just got in from work and I need sleep!!!
