Nice pics.

Seems the wild caught sen displays the traits we like in our poly with the more elongated body and head. I would really be interested to see what the final adult size on the wc sen will turn out to be since so many cb seem to stay relatively modest sized.

I hope to keep them long enough to do so. the quoted size is 16" so let's see :)

Nice, WC look similar to any palmas complex Wc species, i mean the head shape the how the body looks longer.
Maybe it is similar, palmas were in the same shipment actually

I noticed a color difference also.
The difference was clear from day one. I'm hoping tan sand will help enhance the colour when I get it

A bit. Fins were tattered on arrival but not too much aggression seems to be around now, hopefully when i add sand the whole thing will calm down. They avoid each other for the most part
