So, would you be able to refer me to a picture of a nearly perfect show fish? I have the diagrams, but I think seeing a real fish would help. I want to get good at picking out good show fish so I can easily tell which fry will be top notch.

Find my Facebook page and like it. I do reviews there and tell t he good and not so good on fish up for sale on AB. Educational for developing an eye. Was looking tonight for one to do and nothing really grabs me. I don't review the bad one.. but the nice ones so you learn what to look for.

Again, what people here think are good aren't what the judges think are so good, it takes a good eye to tell when you see Sherolyns faults on fish you can better determine what is considered show quality, rarely do they come out of the box that way you must strive to breed good fish and it isn't easy.
I have starting lines but I am a LONG way off of getting anywhere close to where I need to be.
