Blue is the color of the ocean
With waves in tandem and synchronised motion
Blue is the color of the sky
With intermittent clouds that go passing by
Blue is the base of this calico
With intersperse of colors of the rainbow
Blue is certainly not the color of my mood
With such a fish that can only be good.... biggrin.gif






Enjoy

Nice chunky fish shiok.gif I generally go for fish that are about 3-4" + when buying because I think that smaller fish have sometimes been stunted by lack of regular feeds and overcrowding before they even reach the buyer!

Couldn't agree more.Runts and stunts are often sold as young fish for the uninitated.

biggrin.gif generally it is true...

However there are direct importers who import very good quality fish from China... I happen to know one that lives like 3 hours drive away from me. The quality of fish that he imports are comparable to what Singapore has.

However, I started breeding because I don't get the exact quality that I want. I was tired of compromising on different aspect on the fish when I collect. You are better and more experienced collector and you know more of what I am talking about biggrin.gif ... For example the body structure but not the tail or color... etc...

Sure I will post some in the future...
