Remarks:

Several flaws in this fish have me wondering if I should even part with it.  There’s the spikey dorsal fin, the significant pug face, what appears to be a scarred tail where a bottom ray or two were lost and didn’t grow back, a split/twist in one of the ventral fins, and both pectoral fins appear to have bent rays too, as if they were nipped back from fighting and regrew poorly.  In terms of notable markings, the only thing of interest is that the tail stripe stops short on both sides of the fish.

Ordinarily, a fish like this would fall into my culling category and frankly, there’s a part of me that STILL MIGHT DO JUST THAT – this one rides the line.  As with all fish being offered, the defects are not presumed genetic at this time, and the main reason for offering these fish is to broaden the size of the F1 population going forward (ensuring genetic stability where possible).
