    Some do show more spots than others. So far the patterns are a lot less than some of the other contestant's fish.

    Looks great Chad!!

    Maybe use a little bit of Tricane on the fish to anesthetize them for measuring, especially since they are getting larger....quick and easy.

    Tricane or Aquacalm....ive used both and both work great. But since they are anesthetics, overdosing is always a concern. Super simple to work with though. Get yourself a good digital gram scale before you work with it. Can be used as anesthetic for measuring fish, or even added to shipping water to sedate them (reduce transport stress).

    Thanks for the tip Ryan! I'll check in to it. I have a gram scale for ferts, so that's not a problem.

    Best wishes!

    Chad, they just seem too be getting bigger & better. The whole tank in combination with the fish are filling in nicely. Keep it up & you'll end up with just as the fab pics a picture perfect soothing senery!
