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?

Fish seems to be a Tung Hoi signature type ... not a bad fish. looks balance. color wise, not too bad. overall fish should be in the high mid level grading fish. For USD200, u can get a superb grade 3-4" dragon already.

Can take a clear shot on the fish side profile ? I like to see the scale more clearly.

NO.

the pectoral tip will tends to curl as it grow older. It's absolutely normal. Dun worry so much. The tail ends curl inward is due to the tail structure. U can't do anything to correct it. However, do maintain very low water current and clean water to maintain the tail.

Not all dragoneyes are appreciated from top. But if it is sold to you as "Butterfly-tailed" then it should be appreciated from top.

Butterfly tail refered to the Tail, not the way it should be appreciated.
