Remarks:

I really struggle to find anything negative to say about the fish.  The split in the dorsal is likely from fighting and will probably be healed by the time this fish goes to a new home.  The head shape is ever so slightly kinked, but it’s very possible that this will simply be grown out of.  I can’t really say for sure, but it looks like the left ventral fin may be crinkled..hard to tell if that’s a battle scar, or just the way it looks in the photo.

It’s worth noting that this is one of the other really SMALL Lightning Maroons I’ll be offering – there’s only a couple, and these will make good “males” for anyone trying to set up a Lighting X Lightning pairing.  The pattern is really nice to boot, and if you take note, it’s very similar from one flank to the other, both 2nd and 3rd stripes connected, and the same little “tail” on the base of the 2nd stripe is seen on both sides above the anal fin.  Even the outline of the headstripe is remarkably similar by both eyes.

Updates:

As of 6/6/2014, this fish was 2 3/8 inches in total length; this fish is no longer what I’d consider “small”, but it is still definitely one of the smallest from this batch. At this point, I think it’s fair to say that the left ventral is shorter than the right.
