Thread: What is meant by good skin quality?

    First, focus on the top fish, the Sanke with the round spot on his side. (Yes, it is male.) Along the edge of the rear-most step you can see a "fringe" of scales. If you look very closely (especially in the second photo), just above each of the scales forming the hanging fringe on the rear-most step, you can see white in the next row of scales. That's white, not a reflection. Mat predicted a year ago that this is what would occur. The fish has perhaps two years to go, but probably less.

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for the pic... I suppose by 2 years then the hi that is on the bottom will vanish away and turn white?

    The fading will progress upward. Whether all the Hi fades, or a line of stability is reached is a question only the future will answer.
