A sycee was a type of silver or gold ingot currency used in China until the 20th century.

In North China, the word yuanbao (元寶) was also used for similar ingots that are traditionally boat-shaped as seen below.
Today, imitation gold sycees are used a symbol of prosperity by Chinese and are frequently displayed at Chinese New Year and other chineses festivals.

This is a shape of a typical sycee

The body and head suggest a female initially but with tubercles start forming over its first pectoral ray ,a change of gender is on the pipeline.

Remember this fish?

Almost white
But not quite

Just a red patch
Looks kinda of mismatch

Body looks good
So too its potential hood

Swimming exudes much strength
Hope it will grow to much length

Thai is its breed
Pricewise:it may make one bleed........



Well it was somewhere in July that I showed this piece but unfortunately most did not get see it at MFGC because it would have surpassed Cat A classification and put it at a disadvantage in the at Cat B class instead.So here it is now ....just under 6 inches
