Update:
Mahseer died after pushing lid open on tank, found dead on floor. Very sad, but have had enough time, (more than a month) that I will be purchasing another for my grow out tank in my gallery wish me luck. Fish out on over 1” in just 3 weeks with me so that was a plus. In hindsight should have put on stronger lid. Wish me luck with the next one!

THE THREAD CONTINUES……
A lot later than I planned but I finally received my shipment of 3, I repeat 3 Tor putitora slender giant mahseer from Wes… woooo that was a mouthful. Here they are in their bag. I finally got myself a tight lid. Water has a lot of oxygen in it. Feeling great about this! More pictures to come!!!

because they’re are much more slender than any other mahseer. Look at pictures. Even the larger orange fin isn’t close to being slender all mahseer are athletic but these are in a class of their own. Plus Wes made sure to say slender because a lot of “putitora” aren’t slender, which means they aren’t the true giant, it’s a way to validate the fishes authenticity if u will. Good question tho
