    I don't know, but I'd squawk too, if you pulled on my tail! [​IMG] Anyway, here's a bump and I hope you get an answer.

    I agree- black sex link (AKA Black Star) They can have varying degrees of red/gold around the neck, she is on the "more" side. Pretty girl!

    Black sex link, and I bet she dislikes having her tail held more than she dislikes the camera:lol:.
