      My Choices

      I'm a little concerned by the right pectoral.

      No idea why I picked this one. Nothing really remarkable but something about it just grabbed me (Remember, I am a pretty weird person)

      Now this one I love. Some potential IMHO. Looks like a little brute, powerful, nice tail tube, and that balanced pattern is almost mirrored on its nose/head

      I like 12 now but I think it could out grow it's pattern. So I bet 39 turns out to be the best down the road.

      I looked at that O62 for awhile also. It has an interesting pattern on its face. Not that I know anything much yet but think its a cool fish.

      Phew!

      I'm glad that a couple of the guys whose eye I really respect saw what I saw in 039.

      Not being really thrilled with my other choices, I came close, really really close

      I like 39 the best too. I think both of the others have the potential to "grow out" of their patterns. I am still waiting to see who got #17 in the first round.

      Actually, I think #012 is your best overall of these three. The pec is NOT an issue, just a photo problem as it is swimming and both pecs are not fully displayed in this image. The head, shoulders and odome area are all in good proportion, the skin is very nice and I personally don't see this fish growing out of it's pattern. If anything, it has a more refined look to the piebold patterning and the odome has just the right amount of break before the tail.

      I think the middle fish will end up being smaller than the other two and the head pattern concerns me as to how it will hold up with good growth. This one can outgrow it's pattern.

      The last one has a less refined pattern, although good skin quality and body is pretty good. I don't care for how the beni runs up into the tail. I don't think this will go away.
