          Are you loosing a lot of sumi on both fish?


          • #6

            The sumi has withdrawn for now. You can see the underlying sumi, so I am not worried. It seems to be normal for me to have the initial sumi go away and the better sumi coming later.

              wow, surprising how 120 has changed. all that sumi in the original pic has gone but the shiro is great. i was debating on this one vs #67 on my last pick. i think yours will have a much better future as my male is almost finished....good luck!

                I am hoping that they both turn out to be females. The body growth is great even though they only picked up about 2" in length. I am happy with their progress.
