When my Black Aro jumped, I could not just throw him out...So I did it....I took him to the Taxidermist.....See my avitar, or take a gander into my gallery to see a bigger pic! I am glad I had it done!

absolutely.
actually looked into this as diy.
seems the tricky part with fish is the color loss in the scales postmortem.
so a good fish taxidermist has to be another good artist (painter) too.

awesome tribute to your aro jen!

why not, it would be a cool thing to have on the wall and you will always remember your favorite fish. and jen that is a nice mount but how do you get to the gallery?

No, I am not in favor of having dead animals in my home on my walls. I do like the black arrowana though, looks sweet.

Yeah, I would do it. Well that is where my TSN is going when he passes, which I hope is a long time.

I would...if I had the cash. How much does it cost on average? I remember seeing an add when I was sport fishing with my dad for a taxidermist that can mount an animal that you just tank pics of so it doesnt have to be dead.
