with the fish suggested i think i might have come up with the fish.

everyone thinks its a convict but it has the pointed fins of a severum?
what could it be? convicts have more of a rounded fin at the back. and both of there fins ushally curve up/down.

so i think its a severum. i might be wrong...

Now where is Daz's golden severum? Daz! Pls post your severum pic here.:) Let's compare the body of the sev to the one posted on the first one. I still vote for con by the way.

Edit: Here are Dlil's severums.

Comparing both pics, the pics on the first post are still cons to me.

They are not Sevs, I know my Sevs and they most certainly are not.

The fish is the size of a Bolivian Ram at the moment. Which is maybe two or three inches long. But he was kept in a small tank before I got him with hte rams, and he ahs been in a small tank since. The tank he is shown in is a 10 gallon.

Changed my mind, it is a pink convict. The coloring on it's body is to the true to the species, both common black and the pink varieties.
