      PICTURES
      [ATTACH] One showing measurement as best as possible
      [ATTACH] One head to tail "show type" as best as possible

      *to assist in picture taking you can spin fish in bowl by using one hand on head and one towards rear of body or with both hands over head/eye area gently shake back and forth several times, this will disorient fish for a few seconds for a clean shot

      *something close to 400x600/600x400 pixals will be fine
