I had to go with 8. It has a natural in tank look to it. Also a great looking fish and probably they are uncommon. If I ever saw one I'd probably bring it home.

It's also hard to resist any porc.

And why has 10 not gotten a vote> That would be my 2nd or 3rd choice.

Just checked and no it was the same problem once again. The file I got was in an unreadable format.
