^ even a full grown fish with that little separation is a dt, just not one who meets the better of the standards.

An easy way to answer this is, does your boy have the extended dorsal of a DT? Look at the fry BL posted. See how the top fin and bottom fin "mirror" each other along the body?
DTs and fish that carry DT have the extended dorsal like that. regular HM's and PK's and deltas and such the top fin is shorter along the body.

Yeah I know that is kinda what I said lol:)

I love how the Dorsal and anal fin do go to the same length (most of the time). It is what makes the DT special and in fry at 2 weeks old you can see this development.
