The following are a sample of adult Sapphire Xbacks sold to a local hobbyist today. Fishes were caught off the pond. Enjoy ....

All fishes are between 16-18 inches in total length. Age about 2 and a half years old.

Obvious spoon head, full pearls and golden lines on head for this young fish, probably a male?

About 17 inches, probably a female fish.

Approximately 17 inches with a pretty prominent spoon head.

Deeper purple core, spoon head and golden streaks on the head.

Another female fish? Only time will tell ... Hope they will spawn soon in their new pond.
