Love the feedback I'm getting! Great looking fish. I haven't had a chance to really study the links sent yet. Starting to understand the finnage aspect. How about color or size? Are certain colors favored? Are pure white, black or yellow fish more likely to place than say a red, blue or marble? Can fish be too large or small? Hope I'm not asking too many questions. THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!
