Remarks:

This is another smaller Lightning Maroon Clownfish out of the group. It has good pattern, but several flaws.  The head shape, basically being more like a bulldog with a crooked neck and underbite, is a definite issue.  Both ventral fins are undersized, and the one on the right appears short.  Still, it’s a cute fish…just reminds me more of a sculpin than a clownfish in the conformation department.

Ordinarily, a fish like this would fall into my culling category, 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). As of 6/6/2014, this fish was 2 1/8 inches in total length.
