the real name for this fish is threadfin pompano (alectis Speciosus). I have caught several of these as well as moonfish and lookdown's. They are one of the harder to keep fish in the jack family. Here is a pic of one of them i caught this past summer.

There acualy easer to get to eat then the lookdown's but your tank prem's have to be perfect.

hey if you can ship we can alway's do a trade with lookdown's if you catch anything that we could use over here. I know baby lookdown's are value of gold over there in cali. That is where i send 80% the the jack's. ;)
