An american quarter is the coin, used a lot here in the states as a point of reference because it is about 1" in diameter (24.26mm, to be exact).

Hi,nice looking fish you have,i agree with Doug,they look developed enough to start breeding.Your male is possibly calico or calico cross,he's a beauty.

The male in the last 2 pics Is a color I have never seen before on a BN! Congrats on having some beautiful and unique fish. I am interested to know what kind of fry the pair in your last pic throw. Please keep us updated!
And Doug you make a good point on one of my favorite aspects of this forum, it's international membership! I love that we all share our experiences from around the globe!
