Thanks all.

I think I got a pretty good deal from the lfs. It was $40.

For a fish that size I would say that was a DEAL!

How do you measure fish, does it go by from the mouth all the way to the end of the tail. Or mouth to the end of the body before the tail fin starts?

I never measured an aquarium fish. I only guesstimate

I have never pulled out a ruler either. But as far as the guestimating goes are you suposed to count the tail?

Fish are measured from the front of the mouth to the peduncle (just before the caudal fin rays).
