Few years ago, I paid $100 or less for 3" platinum Senegal. 6" was probably $150. A vendor was selling a bunch of them. The prices got jacked up recently.Platinum Senegal appears to becoming common. Or.... the lower grade platinum is just easier to get nowadays. Not sure how these are marketed. Grading system by color and sheen?
I've heard 2 places who had plat Senegal sold for under $100 usd. Are the farms simply getting better at producing leucistic (black eyes) Senegal nowadays? I don't know.
Well I can tell you the better quality photo is a platinum Senegal. I cannot say the same about the yellow picture though, I see the little dots present on a normal Senegal across it's back.Yes I meant 5-6"
I believe both are the same fish. The better pictures are taken with a quality camera, the more yellow pictures were taken with a camera phone. That is what I am lead to believe anyway.
It's prices at £100. Is that about right?
Tempted to buy but will be unable to return it or get me money back if it turns out not to be platinum.
