Markings on the fins for example, or any colour hues, the type of patterning, and so forth. The general drawings on that site are quite good to narrow down the options.
By the way, asking the same issue in three different threads in three different sections of the forum is not a good idea, as you will get some members here and some members there. With one thread, everyone will see everyone else's responses, and this is usually better for a more complete answer. Sometimes we all jig each other's thinking.
i am sorry byron this was from my lack of understanding about how to post add to an already going thread and uplaod photos to a thread rather than a wish to post in multi places(which shows my ignorance as i thought i had posted to the same place anyhow)? I use a smart phone to search online and if you could as a moderator delete everything but this post thread for me i can just use this. I did not mean to rub anyone up the wrong way i only found the site a few days ago.
Also looking myself without help with the subtle things was what i needed help with i am out of my depth with this maybe i should just be content they are happy and healthy i feel a little stupid now.
