Hello. I am a new member from New York. I want to know what you think of my new calico butterfly. I know that this piece does not really hold up by your standards, but consider that for America, this fish is considered high end, and I actually paid a pretty high price for it. I just wanted to know what things I can do to improve the appearance of this fish. Consider that it has only been in my posession for 2 days, and was shipped to me from Texas.

I also wanted to add that the top edges of the pectoral fins curl down, and the tail ends curl in. Can these defects be fixed?

Over here this variety is also known as butterfly tail dragon eyes.The curl in the tails are perfectly acceptable,depending on how the curl is,but I am no expert in this field.There are a few members here who specialise in these and may offer a better comment.However, this variety is usually better appreciated from the top , as you can see from most pics of this type of fish in the forum.It would be better if you can provide a top view pic of this fish for better comments.
