    Is it just me or does #2 look a little color enhanced behind the gills.

    Probably an element of flash / high contrast. It met my criteria -- didn't appear to be manipulated beyond the spirit of the competition. Just a couple more days to vote!

    Thanks all, for your congrats! This is a form that gets bright yellow colors in the anterior region and very nice fin extensions.

    See:

    http://apisto.sites.no/fish.aspx?fishIndexID=2448&gruppeID=1 Martin and Tom C's homepage of apistos - sp. Tefe
    http://www.apistogramma.com/forum/threads/wild-ap-sp-tefe.13516/ (esp. 4th photo down-photo by Champ)

    for comparable photos of this form.

    lametechno13 - no color enhancement on the photo, but just not that great of a camera which does not really render photos as crisply or finely as higher end models - one of these days I'll get a better one :D

    Thanks Brian, for organizing and moderating the contest - a very nice feature of the forum.
