    Well Heres the large mangrove jack his still stressed but will turn red very soon! a bit over 60cm( 2ft) sharp teeth and sharp fins but a true beauty to watch.



    His a bit ruffed up from the move was hard to catch as he could rip the nets apart with his teeth or just swim threw them lol.

    Beautiful fish!

    If he is a bit roughed up, adding some Prime or Nova Aqua +, something to add body slime to the fish and reduce stress may help.

    Thanks for sharing!
