    Sue and Dick's sanke

    Last but definitely not least is the grande dame of this tank. This sanke has presence. It just glided across the tank. I got a couple of close up of the body to try to show the quality of the fish.

    Congrats Dick and Sue (AuntieSue) I think you've got a winner here!

    Dan, that is called prescence when a fish swims and has the body and quality and you forget about the pattern.. Picture does not show quality but the body and bone structure. I gotta say that fish swam like it ruled the tank....

    Actually Joe, there were a total of 4 of them, Frank and I bought 1, Ken at Eastern bought the other 3. Loc Buu bought the #2, Michael Chua bought the #1, and the #3 was bought buy a gentlemen backeast. Loc's looks really good still. But the #1 & #3 are both dead.
