    [​IMG]Well this coming Saturday I'll be picking up my latest auction win. I liked this one because, maybe It's me, but looks like a heart on the head.

    Pretty Sushui, It has some really nice character marks, love the red nose, zipper looks good and straight down the back. Love to see how it changes as it grows. Should be really nice when it gets 15" or bigger and the white starts filling in.

    Thanks all. I was wondering about the white. I hope some white comes in. Is it normal for them to have no white at this age?

    yes, at 6" it's almost transparent, 12" should start showing the background base.color, 15-16" it really white starts to pop. That's when the red really pops as well. I would be concerned about the head but if you purchased it for the heart on the head in hopes of it staying dark then it may work out for you. Hard to say at this point but it may always stay dark and not whiten up. nice fish, I think you will really enjoy watching this one grow.

    Well the little guy/gal is home. Not really a heart shape like I thought but hey, it is still unique. So I suck as a photographer so hope the pics are clear.
