Your new hatchling is colorful, with scales that shimmer in the sunlight. The blues and pinks are constantly in motion over your hatchling's scales, even when your creature itself isn't moving. As they grow, the scales will fall off with normal shedding, but the scales of a hatchling don't contain the same power as an adult's. They will still generate color, but it fades quickly.

Lakiran seahorses are friendly creatures, easy to tame and completely loyal. They are hard to find, preferring to stay near the bottom of the lake, and their small size makes them surprisingly hard to spot despite the beautiful color of their scales. Their scales themselves, however, are widely considered the most interesting thing about them. The scales of a Lakiran seahorse are incredibly valuable for artists. When a scale is removed, they generate their own light, like miniature sunbeams, and the beams of light remain where the scale has been dragged. With a touch of magic and permission of the seahorse, a few scales of different colors can be removed and used like a brush on canvas--but the canvas isn't needed, and the image will remain in the air, a collection of beams of light. It will remain as long as the seahorse lives. Pictures drawn from the magic of a seahorse scale cannot be moved, so rich individuals will pay obscene amounts of money for a light display to be created within their houses.
