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?

Yeah. That fish is indeed from Tommy. I won him in last weeks auction, and ended up dropping over 200 bucks for him shipping included. I'm sure that this will make most everyone on this forum not from America choke on their food, but thats how much he cost, and considering the comparative quality of the other fish here, I don't think that I overpaid. I really wish I could go to Singapore and have a FIELD DAY in your pet stores. I might have to fill a plane all by myself with those amazing fish I am seeing in the gallery. Lucky Lucky Lucky. Btw. He has next to no blue on him. I have been told that Chinese breeders do not breed for much blue, and as far as all calicos go, the bluest fish come from Japan. Is this true? I bought him based on his qualities as a sideview, as his back is more curved than any other dragoneye I have seen for sale recently. I was actually looking for a broadtail, but this fish's sideview looks pleased me. I will post a top view picture of him tomorrow, as I cannot find my digicam right now.
Please also critique this fish as a SV if at all possible.
